Programmes

A certificate is awarded upon the completion of each IHEI programme. A general diploma of the Institute is awarded after the completion of at least two programmes.

However, a relevant certificate will be granted to students who complete only one of the IHEI programmes.

The IHEI certificate is not considered as an equivalent to the Master´s degree.
