In the second year of the MPhil program, students have to complete 30 ECTS of specialized coursework. The MPhil thesis (30 ECTS) is the final examination of the MPhil program. The thesis is written under supervision of one of the institute’s research fellows. It should be suitable for submission to an international, peer-reviewed journal and may eventually serve as the first chapter of the PhD thesis. See curriculum
