The Basic Semester features several courses introducing you to the basic tools of Environmental Science, including the mandatory 15 ECTS E-learning course Environmental Management in Europe. All students must start the Basic Semester with two introduction days to the Environmental Management in Europe course immediately after the EnvEuro Introduction Days in Copenhagen.

At the end of the first semester you must choose one of the six specialisations as well as your Host university. In the second semester you will start your chosen specialisation at your Home university with the first Advanced Semester Package (ASP-1). In the third semester you will go to your Host university and continue the specialisation or change to another specialisation with the second Advanced Semester Package (ASP-2).

Finally, you will complete the Master programme with a Masters Thesis made at your Host university, with supervisors from both universities.
