fly in to Berlin for their weekend block of lectures, and are not 'present' for the rest of the class / semester.
Yeah, that's how I understood it. I actually think the programme even requires you to have one year of professional experience, so they really want students who already have practical experience. As Kangaroo explained, they have permanent staff who are there all year long for you to guide you and stuff, so it seems to be a combination.
I think that sounds quite good and I will probably apply and see whether they accept me or not. What other programmes are you looking at, Xea?
