This two-year full-time programme is taught in English in the UK, Sweden and Norway. It is an EU-approved programme with three partners:
Roehampton University (London, UK)
Göteborgs Universitet (Göteborg, Sweden)
Universitetet I Tromsø (Tromsø, Norway).
The final award is a multiple degree between all three institutions. The partners equally contribute to the whole programme and share responsibility for its delivery.
The programme starts in Sweden in late August for the first semester before moving to the UK. Students spend the first term of the second year in Norway before spending the last semester in the most appropriate country to complete their dissertations. The programme requires successful completion of 120 ECTS (UK equivalent is 240 credits at master's level).
