| A key component of the programme involves spending two weeks in each of the four universities. For each of these two-week intensive teaching blocks, we have cherry-picked the best expertise and specialist knowledge from each particular university.
The majority of the teaching days last from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. and participants are expected to write a short paper during the teaching period. This paper will be presented and discussed on the last day of the teaching block. On top of that, all blocks feature one or more site visits. Examples of the first round include an oil platform under construction, an offshore wind farm and an underground gas storage facility. These site visits are designed to broaden the view of participants and relate legal theory to practice. They provide an opportunity to gain a new perspective and increased insight into the energy sector.
The programme overview of the two-week teaching period of each block can be found below. The duration of the entire block, however, is longer than two weeks since it includes preparation, the teaching period itself and writing an elaborate paper after the teaching period. Once the four teaching blocks are completed, you’ll have nine months to write and submit a your master’s thesis.The programme will be concluded by a symposium where students present their final thesis.
Candidates who submit their application for the full round before June qualify for a tuition fee of €25000*
