NL - University of Twente MSc Programme  ETSD
The MSc Programme "Educational and Training Systems Design (ETSD)" is a one-year programme (for the regular mode of study) and two years programme (for distance mode, including weekend face-to-face sessions), internationally oriented, for persons who find themselves in a career situation where they are responsible for strategic responses to educational and training problems and challenges. The Programme is offered in English and has as major characteristics: (1) the application of theory into practice, and (2) a focus on the needs and situation of the individual participant. 

This Programme was started in August 1994 at the Faculty of Behavioural Sciences at the University of Twente in Enschede, The Netherlands. On September, 1998, the University of Twente and Sofia University "St. Kliment Ohridski" signed on a Memorandum of Understanding for a licensed regional delivery of the Master of Science Programme 'Educational and Training Systems Design' at the Sofia University through the newly established Centre of Information Society Technologies. 

In terms of responsibilities this implies that the actual teaching will take place in the Sofia University, Bulgaria, while the University of Twente maintains full responsibility for the content and the quality of the licensed programme. All successfully graduated students receive a MSc degree diploma from University of Twente. 

Student performance in each course will be monitored by a member of the teaching staff of the University of Twente, who is responsible for the on-campus (Enschede) version of the particular course. This implies that the instructional staff that teaches the Master of Science Programme 'Educational and Training Systems Design' on-campus at the University of Twente will be involved in the monitoring process for the licensed programme that is delivered by the Centre of Information Society Technologies, Sofia University.
