- Master’s (cycle 2), takes 1 or 2 years
- Doctoral (cycle 3), takes 3 years or more
Most universities also offer short programs of various lengths, such as those leading to specialized graduate studies certificates or diplomas.
Universities include faculties in all kinds of subject areas as well as professional schools such as those specializing in business and engineering.
