What is the difference between Full-time (Residential Track) and Part-time (European Track)?

The MScIH program can be completed in a one-year full-time Residential Track with a fixed set of Advanced Modules taken at Heidelberg University. Another option is to study the course in a part-time mode, the sometimes called European Track. This track allows you to complete the program within 5 years and gives the opportunity to make an individual choice of Advanced Modules offered within the tropEd network. Before entering the program, the candidate must decide which track to follow.
