Global-MINDS Curriculum

Note: The opening of the programme and each individual mobility path will depend on having sufficient students enrolled. Path A is also contingent on the local partner programme at ISCTE-IUL (the Master in the Psychology of Intercultural Relations) having sufficient students to open, which will be decided no later than the end of June, 2021. In the case of any individual path not opening, students will be assigned to another path, taking into consideration stated preferences. All courses listed here are subject to change in the case of unforeseen circumstances.

In order to fulfill the mobility requirements, students must complete 30 ECTS in each semester.
