Program overview

These aims will be achieved through providing to participants with the opportunity to engage with various academic perspectives of young people in the community at large, and to build a thorough understanding of the myriad domains that influence the lived experiences of young people. In addition, experiential-based study-units – especially the fieldwork placements – are designed in such a way to enable students to link theory with practice. Students who successfully complete study-units to which not less than 60 ECTS credits are assigned, and opt not to proceed with the Course, or having proceeded do not successfully complete the programme for the Degree, shall be entitled to the award of the Diploma in Youth and Community Studies.
