All courses and research activities are in English.

The program is organized over two semesters with a first half allocated to specific courses and the second half more dedicated to research training.

The teaching is organized in 216 hours face-to-face lectures, tutorials, practical, seminars and literature survey.

The courses are structured in four compulsory teaching units allowing students from very different backgrounds to complement and strengthen their knowledge that will constitute the theoretical basis for their research studies.

Among the compulsory courses, students should attend seminars given by internationally renowned researchers.



In addition to the 21 ECTS units (European Credits Transfer System) attributed to the compulsory courses, students can choose from optional courses after consultation with their internship supervisor.

For graduation, students must successfully complete the courses and the defense of their Master thesis with a minimum of 60 ECTS credits.



The courses will be given by faculty members of the University of Lorraine belonging to the IJL and LEM3 laboratories located in Nancy and Metz, respectively
