First Level Master
MALED is delivered as a First Level Master in Applied Labour Economics for Development by the Department of Economics and Statistics of the University of Torino, according to the so-called Bologna Process, which created the European Higher Education Area (EHEA) by making academic degree standards and quality assurance standards more comparable and compatible throughout Europe (for more information, click here). Therefore, the Master in Applied Labour Economics for Development carries 60 ECTS (European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System), equivalent to the workload of the full-time student during one academic year.
The Master's diploma is awarded upon successful passing of all the exams, thesis submission and after having fulfilled all the conditions required.
IMPORTANT: A First Level Master does not give access to PhD programmes. Admission requirements to PhD programmes vary from country to country, as these depend on the university system of the country where the PhD programme is held. For more information on the minimum requisites required, please directly contact the university offering the PhD programme you are interested in. As a general rule, for instance, a three-year bachelor's degree plus a first level master’s degree are not considered sufficient for doctoral studies at the University of Turin: both a bachelor’s and a two-year master's degree (second level) are usually required.
