European joint Master’s degree programmes are among the top programmes

29 May 2024

On 27 May, the EACEA in Brussels celebrated the fact that the first Erasmus Mundus Master’s degree programmes were launched twenty years ago. During this event, the UG was decorated for its active and successful contribution to the Erasmus Mundus Master’s degree programmes. The degree programmes Clinical Linguistics and NOHA were decorated in the category Successful Master’s degree programmes. This prestigious acknowledgement emphasizes our dedication to international education and academic collaboration. By participating in these programmes, we promote the worldwide mobility of students and reinforce our position as a centre of academic excellence.

In total, thirty-one applications or reapplications submitted by the UG were approved, which puts us in third place, ranking after the universities of Ghent and Padova, and level with Universidad Autonoma Barcelona and the universities of Barcelona and Bologna. Thanks to our good relations with Ghent and with our partners in the Coimbra Group network, including Padova, Barcelona, Bologna, and Uppsala, this collaboration form received a huge boost.
