The OIV MSc student Life

An important personal investment

The participation to the OIV MSc Master requires strong motivation commitment. The year is a financial and temporal investment that should not be underestimated by those who wish to enroll.

Progressing in autonomy

The students operate, most of the time, autonomously, under the responsibility of one of their own, the module delegate. The delegate is in charge of the class and coordination of the module in liaison with the director of the studies.

A program that doesn't stop with the end of classes

Life at the OIV MSc both inside and outside the classroom is stimulating and intense. Although the pace of the programme is fast and participants have a schedule that is full with classes, group work and personal study time, life doesn’t stop when study is done for the day. It is not rare that extracurricular and social activities are organised either by the students themselves, or the alumni they meet, or even  the professionals.

La vie pendant et en dehors des cours est à la fois stimulante et intense. Bien que le rythme du programme est rapide et que les participans ont un agenda bien rempli, la vie ne s'arrête pas une fois que la journée de cours est finie. Il n'est pas rare que des activités supplémentaires soient organisées, à l'initiative des étudiants eux-même, mais aussi des anciens qu'ils rencontreront sur leur route, ou bien encore par les intervenants eux-mêmes.

All the Alunmi will tell you the same : there are not two days that look like each others and a module can always surprise you. And remember this, however you decide to spend your time while doing the OIV MSc, you will most likely look back on your year as an exceptional one.
