Specialisation studies are a form of education, offered alongside degree studies and continuing professional education. They are intended for those who are in the working life, have completed a higher university degree or have otherwise acquired the equivalent competence. In universities, specialisation studies are primarily completed after a higher university degree. The extent of the specialisation studies is a minimum of 30 ECTS credits.
Specialisation studies are often offered in cooperation between two or more universities. Students are selected for a specific university (= home university) and they may also complete studies in other universities (= partner university).
