Programme structure

The courses and modules we outline are divided into two major categories: mandatory modules prevailing in the first two semesters will give you a solid foundation in security and development studies. Academic tracks courses taught in the third and fourth semesters will provide more focused knowledge and competence in your chosen area.

Apart from these, there are a number of optional courses offered every year. Additionally, we offer a language course in one of the following languages: German, French, or Polish. Other languages may also be offered.

ISAD, as a two year programme, is divided into four semesters. Students need to complete modules worth at least 60 ECTS (European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System) credits each year and 120 ECTS in total.
