The paper presents four alternative curricula of MSc course in Rail Freight and Logistics developed within the RiFLE LLP/Erasmus project. They are discussed from the perspectives of students at the partner universities in Newcastle, Rome, Sofia and Ingolstadt. Each curriculum consists of a number of subjects so that a student can be granted 90 ECTS. The subjects identified are grouped by 6 key streams: Logistics; Technology and Management of Rail Transport; Rail and Logistics Infrastructure; Management and Marketing in Rail Freight and Logistics; Safety, Security and Risk Management; Transport Planning and Economics. The outcomes of the project and especially the curricula provide the necessary lever to establish and implement a possible joint degree programme in rail freight and logistics involving the universities of the participating countries in the future.
