Start of the Double Degree program and booking of Master's modules beforehand
The start of the studies in the Double Degree Master's program is only possible once the Bachelor of Law has been completed. Master's modules can be booked prior to the start of the studies in the Double Degree program, but care must be taken that the modules correspond to the respective study programs of the Double Degree (MLaw/MLaw ICL). Nevertheless, the duration of studies is always at least 2 years, regardless of how many Master's modules have already been completed.
More information about booking of Master's modules beforehand can be found here.
Important information regarding same/similar Modules
Students are not allowed to take equivalent or similar modules at RWF UZH and at the partner faculty, or these cannot be counted twice towards the course credits. Whether two modules are equivalent or similar is determined by their content. If equivalent or similar modules have nevertheless been completed, these ECTS credits will not be counted towards the degree and the student must complete an additional module to achieve the missing ECTS credits, even if this is not possible until the following year. It is the student's responsibility to ensure that he/she does not take equivalent or similar modules. In case of doubt, the coordinators of the home or partner faculty can be contacted.
