The programme covers one academic year, for which successful students will receive 60 ECTS points.
The academic year is divided into three terms; it starts at the beginning of October and ends in June. The unique international and interdisciplinary character of the EMLE Programme is secured through an intensive co-operation between no less than seven European Universities and two non-European partners.
Students may study at up to three different universities but cannot spend all terms in the same location. In the first two terms students can choose among three teaching centres. This leads to an average class size of up to 35 students, given a maximum of 105 admitted students in the entire program. In the last term students have the choice of six different locations.
