The RRE programme is an elite education that qualifies students to apply for further education to do innovative scholarly work, e.g., in PhD programmes.
The qualified teaching staff of the programme provides students with both specialized up-to-date knowledge and the relevant communication skills that are highly valued in current job markets.
Teaching combines distance learning, compact seminars, course assignments, tutorials and traditional teaching at the individual host institutions. The courses will require the students to submit tutorials and hold verbal presentations.
The modules of every single term must be examined before the student can be examined for the modules of the next. There is a steady progression culminating in the fourth term with the master’s thesis. It follows that the master’s thesis should be assessed as the final module in the Programme.
As part of the Programme there will be two to three compact seminars in the first term, two in the second, and two in the third. The seminars will be held at the host institutions. Travel and accommodation are financed by the students.
Always verify the dates on the programme website.
