The degree given to successful students at the end of the course is handed out by the core University:
- European MSc from Hanze UAS
The course is assessed with laboratory work, mini-projects, end-of-term exams and a project. The three sections of the course (core-specialisation-project) carry equal marks.
The main principle behind the recognition of qualifications within the European Union is that if an individual has completed a major part of his or her qualification in one EU country it will be recognised in all EU countries.This principle of recognition also applies to EEA countries (Liechtenstein,Iceland and Norway) and Switzerland. The degree obtained by graduates of the European Master in Sustainable Energy System Management at the end of the course is awarded by the core University. Degrees awarded by Hanze University are fully recognised as University degrees both in their country ( the Netherlands) and in the other 27 Members States of the European Union. Non European students who successfully complete the European Master in Sustainable Energy System Management obtain a degree which is supposed to be recognised by the relevant authorities also in their countries of origin. However, the recognition of an educational qualification depends on the competent authorities at national and regional level outside the EU. Moreover, students who necessitate an integrative official statement certifying the nature, level, context, content and status of the studies that were successfully completed (therefore similar to the "European Diploma Supplement”) can obtain such declaration upon simple written request to EUREC or to the core University where they first studied.
