UE Master's Reform

More flexible, more interdisciplinary, and more practice-oriented – the new Master’s programmes make the University of Europe for Applied Sciences (UE) even more attractive! Students of selected MA programmes at UE have the choice of a Master’s degree in 60, 90, or 120 ECTS which gives them full flexibility. Students can apply for one of the three options depending on the education they’ve already achieved and how many ECTS they’ve already accumulated in their previous Bachelor’s (or Master’s) courses. Practical experience will also be taken under consideration.
