Curriculum Flecha DownCreated with Sketch.


The studies in the E-5 Program (Bachelor's Degree in Law and Bachelor's Degree in International Relations) have a total of 374 ECTS credits that are distributed over five academic years, at the end of which both official degrees are obtained. The course load of the different courses revolves around an average of approximately 75 credits per academic year.

As in the rest of the dual programs at ICADE, E-5 presents an innovative structure in the study plan, aimed at combining a guarantee of acquiring fundamental knowledge for each of the two Bachelor's Degree included in this dual degree, together with a margin of personalized course planning of their studies by students.

In this way, the first three years of the program are common to all students, who progress in a similar fashion in attaining the knowledge and fundamental skills of the Bachelor's Degree in Law, as well as the Bachelor's Degree in International Relations. During the final two years of the program, students are permitted to decide how to permanently complete their studies with a certain degree of autonomy in choosing their credits.

For this purpose, during the 4th year of the E-5 Program, students can choose to continue their educational training at ICADE in both Bachelor's Degrees, or to enroll for the first semester at a Faculty of Law or International Relations at one of the numerous Universities with which ICADE has exchange agreements. In the latter case, the subjects of the 4th Year are redistributed between the two semesters in order to optimize the recognition of the courses taken during the semester of exchange and to ensure adequate continuity in learning during the second semester. In the same way, during the first semester of the 5th academic year of the E-5 program, students can choose to carry out an extended period of internship (thus extending their internships from 6 to 18 ECTS credits), or to carry out an exchange in Law or in International Relations, or to enlarge their educational training at ICADE.
