Other information

All students will be registered for the Euromasters from the outset, although, as the first year is common to the IHM programme, it would be possible for students to move onto the 2-yr programme should they decide they wish to. Similarly, in principle, it would be possible for students joining the 2-yr programme to revert to the 1-yr IHM programme. In both cases, this decision would have to be made by the end of semester 1 of the first year, as it is at this point that the Dissertation element of the 1-yr programme starts
