The second year is a year of specialization and you are free to plan and compose the year as you like within one of four different study tracks. You can choose between elective courses in Denmark or abroad and/or you can do an internship in a relevant company or organisation. The only requirement is that you should obtain a total of 60 ETCS and finalise your study with a master's thesis.
