The prerequisite for access to a Master's programme is a successfully completed Bachelor's programme. Each university makes its own decisions as to whether a Bachelor's degree obtained in a foreign country gives its holder access to Master's programmes - with or without entrance examinations, under certain conditions, with further requirements, or no access at all. The university may set additional requirements, equally applicable to all candidates, for admission to specialized Master's programmes.
In this second cycle of studies, the student will further advance his or her knowledge and specialize in a particular field, or acquire an interdisciplinary formation. This programme is completed with the writing of a master's thesis.
In the Bologna system, a Master's programme lasts three to four semesters (depending on the field of study) and awards 90 to 120 ECTS credits.
