    Semester 3 begins with a unit designed to provide students with a basic foundation of knowledge in international, European, national and comparative environmental law.

Finally, they follow a unit dedicated to transversal skills allowing them to learn about documentary research, job search and to improve their English.

Semester 4 gives students the opportunity to choose between a 3-6 month internship (professional pathway), a research dissertation (research pathway) or a semester abroad in a partner university.
