All background modules are full-time block courses lasting 2-3 weeks (6 CP), 4-5 weeks (9 CP), or  6-7 weeks (15 CP). During research modules, students stay for 6-8 weeks full-time in the lab of their chosen supervisor. Alternatively, many supervisors offer part-time internships, in which the project is stretched over a longer period. Skills modules are either block courses during the semester break, or during the semester in the late afternoon hours to be compatible with the other courses.
