The BIM A+ programme has a duration of one academic year (60 ECTS credits) and is held on both University of Minho and University of Ljubljana.
For the academic year 2024/2025, Coursework (October – March) occurs simultaneously at the University of Ljubljana and the University of Minho, with the students being able to take the first semester at either of these two locations. The elaboration of Dissertation (April – September) can also be performed in any of these two institutions. This results in 4 possible tracks of mobility, as shown below:
Even though it is not mandatory that students carry out the entire coursework in one location and the dissertation in another location, this mobility situation is highly encouraged by the Consortium. The mobility track is based on students’ preferences taking into account an adequate balance between different institutions. The curriculum is exactly the same, no matter the student’s mobility track. For students applying for tracks #3 and #4 (i.e. no mobility), seats are more limited.
The study programme is composed of seven modules, with six sequential coursework modules and one final dissertation.
