The Master of Advanced Studies in Children's Rights (MCR) is an interdisciplinary and international postgraduate programme in children's rights which attracts a diverse range of graduate students from all over the world.

The programme takes place over a two-year period and requires participants to attend four week-long residential modules per year. In addition to the residential modules and the completion of exercises and examinations based on the required course reading materials, students are also expected to devise an individual training programme which consists of
a segment of practical experience (internship), the preparation of a report on conferences or meetings attended and the completion of a research paper (Master’s thesis). The teaching activities are supported by tutors who are assigned to each student for the purposes of guiding and supervising their research work and by an interactive internet Platform.
