The MEIG Programme reserves the right to make any necessary changes to this provisional calendar.
The MEIG is an intensive programme. For the one-year programme, an average week comprises about 15 to 20 hours of in-class courses for which the students have to thoroughly prepare in advance (2 to 3 hours of preparation for one hour of class is a good estimate). For the two-year option, the workload is roughly the same but spread out over two years, and will depend on how the student customizes the programme.
The MEIG teaching system requires an active class, where students are called on to express their opinions, discuss the views expressed by classmates and comment on required readings.
Some activities (workshops, lectures, seminars, conferences, study trips, networking events, etc) do not follow a regular pattern and they are scattered throughout the programme. That is why no two weeks look alike at MEIG.
Our students should be prepared to fully commit themselves. MEIG is a transformative experience where working hard pays off.
