Students can choose between multiple starting dates in the fall, winter, spring, and summer of each academic year. Our modular course design and program structure allows for an optimal further education planning.
Because of the program's flexible structure and modular design, multiple starting dates are available throughout the academic year in October, November, January, February, April, or May.
Students can transfer between campuses on a quarterly basis with guaranteed program compatibility. Our quarter-based academic calendar allows for a continuous study abroad experience across Europe and Asia.
Postgraduate students can study abroad in 6 of our 9 global campus locations in Antwerp, Barcelona, Brussels, Madrid, Tokyo, and Zurich.
Our campuses are all located in the city center of several exciting destinations. Students are encouraged to transfer between campuses for one or more quarters, but may also choose a single campus as their destination of choice. Students who prefer shorter periods abroad can join our seminar courses taught by visiting professors at several of our campuses throughout the academic year.
Upon successful completion of the study program students receive an international private Doctor of Philosophy in Communication Studies (PhD) awarded by the school's headquarters in Zurich, Switzerland, based on the recommendation of the faculty of the local campuses where credits were earned.
