The REM programme has an innovative teaching system, with courses provided consecutively (i.e. only one course is followed at a time) with a duration between 1 and 4 weeks, where each week is characterized by around 20 hours of lectures and tutorials. The faculty comprises renowned lecturers from all over the world; the consecutive, short-term structure of the courses clearly encourages faculty from other institutions to participate in the school system. Each course involves lectures, tutorials, coursework and a written exam, with the latter accounting for between 30 to 60% of the final grade.
Considering the broad nature of the REM programme, a number of Introductory Courses will be offered to provide a common starting basis for all students. The necessity to attend these courses will be assessed on a case-by-case basis, considering the background of the Masters candidate.
For the 2013/2014 academic year, there are three different types of scholarships available for the highest ranking applicants:
- Living expenses + accomodation fee and tuition fee waivers
- Accommodation fee and tuition fee waivers
- Tuition fee waivers
Masters candidates will follow an 18-month programme (90 ECTS) which will include 12 months of courses (worth 60 ECTS) and 6 months dedicated to an Industry Project (worth 30 ECTS), which may be carried out in one of the partner institutions with which there is a cooperation agreement.
