When you enrol in September, the first two semesters you will attend lectures at the Tio campus followed by a 13 week internship during the summer. This applies for the three and four-year programme.

You can also enrol in January; however this does mean that the total duration of the programme will take half a year longer. You will be attending many of the same lectures as the students from the September enrolment. This is possible given that the semesters within an academic year can be followed independently. Your internship will take place halfway through the first academic year.
