The IMARC programme is divided into four semesters:
- The programme starts at EUR, where you take several basic theoretical and methodological courses in criminology, focusing on international criminology in general and border crossing, security and social justice in particular.
- In the second semester, you choose a specialization track at one of the three Universities.
- It is possible to move to another University or location in the third semester for an internship or to do fieldwork for your thesis. If you follow the EUR track, moving to another University is mandatory under the mobility rules (two Universities during the programme). For other tracks, you may also stay at the University within that track.
- In semester 4 you write your Master’s thesis under supervision of the University at which you follow the track.
