The Master's degree cycle allows students to broaden their knowledge, either to specialise in a particular field or acquire an interdisciplinary training.

In the Bologna system, this second cycle lasts for 3 to 4 semesters (90-120 ECTS credits), depending on the programmes chosen. The Master's degree is considered to be an end-of-study qualification equivalent to the degrees of the former system, called in French licence or diplôme.
