Unfortunately, there is no opportunity to do this course online. From September to July, participants will be expected to class in Lausanne. After the classes end in July, participants can either return to their home country, or stay in the area for the remainder of the year while working on their personal project and completing at least 8 weeks of full time work experience.
The work experience or internship portion of the programme is a requirement to fulfil before graduating, but must be secured by the candidate (and can be anywhere in the world).
