We offer a range of flexible study options, allowing you to tailor your degree to suit your needs, interests and personal circumstances. For programmes undertaken exclusively in Paris, we offer part-time and full-time study, plus September and January start dates.

Standard and Extended programmes

MA programmes studied entirely in Paris are offered in both the standard (90 ECTS) and the extended (120 ECTS) programme format. To be awarded a standard Master's degree, you must take four taught modules and submit a dissertation. You will complete the standard Master’s degree in one calendar year. The extended programme allows you to broaden your knowledge and experience by taking more options and gives you a greater opportunity for internships. For the extended programme, you must take an additional two taught modules. The extended programme takes just under two years to complete. See the relevant programme page for more information.  

Part-time study

MA programmes studied entirely in Paris are also offered part-time. This means that you would undertake programme requirements over the course of two academic years instead of one (or three in the case of the extended MA). Please note that due to contact hour requirements, students applying to our part-time programmes must possess the right to study in France without a visa.

Start your studies in January

In order to provide flexibility for our students, students enrolled on an MA programme delivered entirely in Paris can begin their programme in either September or January. Due to the nature of our academic calendar, starting in January will extend your enrolment to approximately one and a half years of study.

Study in Canterbury and in Paris

Most of our MA programmes allow you to study in two exciting cultural capitals. Students enrolled on our “split-site” programmes will begin their studies at our beautiful Canterbury campus before spending their Spring Term in Paris. Please note that programmes studied across our Canterbury and Paris locations are only available as full-time programmes starting in September.
