Programme content and structure

The programme provides an in-depth knowledge of mineral resources and environmental geochemistry to act as a professional in industrial and university applications. For the masters degree (120 ECTS) the requirements include courseworks on advanced level on following modules:

- Georesource characterisatoin (max 26,5 ECTS)

- Georesources processing (max 36 ECTS)

- Georesources modeling (max 35 ECTS)

- Georesources management (max 21 ECTS)

- Masters thesis 30 ECTS.

The students mobility goes through following scheme: 1) Liege (fall academic year 1); 2) Nancy (spring of academic year 1); 3) Luleå or Freiberg (fall of academic year 2) and 4) Master's thesis at Luleå, Nancy, Liege or Freiberg (spring of academic year 2).   The education includes an EIT sponsored summer school between the first and second academic year. Summer school is a compulsory preparation for the degree project. Students receive a certificate but no higher education credits.

Swedish for beginners is offered to overseas students. The course is not included in the degree, and is read in addition to the obligatory courses
