As a Grande Ecole du Droit’s student, a chance was given to me to choose a Master subject while doing my last year of Bachelor degree. Without any doubt, I chose the one named “Droit des activités spatiales, des télécommunications et des médias” directed by Pr. Philippe Achilleas, who is also teaching in the GED course.
Concerning the form of this class it is obvious that it is totally different from the one taught in the GED track. In fact, it is popular enough to gather at least 100 students. That is to say that the class is less interactive, but there is still a possibility to interrupt the professor and to ask questions at the end.
Concerning the content of the class, attention is given separately to spatial activities, telecommunications and medias. Be aware that the two first parts are more sizeable than the third one.
During the final exam, a question will be orally asked on a particular subject studied during the semester. As the majority of oral exams, ten minutes are given to prepare your answer before you have to explain it to the Professor for another ten minutes. A list of all the possible questions is established in advance, so that it is easier to get prepared for the day of the exam.
As I am very interested in the covered subjects, I absolutely do not regret my choice! Firstly, I enjoyed the abilities of the Professor himself to keep students’ attention by explaining his own experience; secondly, the content follows at the same time a deep and wide approach, which offers a good overview of the subject; thirdly, a presentation of the M2 is given by current students which is a good opportunity to get more information on it.
If you already have some interest for the subject or if you are just curious about it, I advice you to choose that class… you won’t regret it!
