Short Specialisation degrees offered in English or other languages

Short specialisation courses lead to an out-of-mainstream university qualification. They can be accessed after a 1st or 2nd cycle degree course and they last at least one year.
Although they are called "master" in Italian, they are clearly different from the usual master degree, which – not only in English-speaking countries but also in the whole area of the Bologna Process – corresponds to the Italian laurea magistrale.
