Twice as many Erasmus Mundus Master’s programmes at University of Groningen

19 August 2009

This academic year, the number of international Master’s degree programmes at the University of Groningen with the Erasmus Mundus label will double from four to eight. The University of Groningen now offers the highest number of ‘Erasmus Mundus Master Courses’ in the Netherlands.

An ‘Erasmus Mundus Master Course’ (EM MC) is a Master’s degree programme offered by a consortium of European universities. Students of such programmes take modules at two or more institutions within the consortium and are awarded a ‘Double Degree’ when they graduate. EM MCs are prestigious degree programmes used by the European Committee to internationally promote higher education. Erasmus Mundus consortia can apply for grants for non-EU students to the European Committee. In addition, institutions in third countries can also become members of the consortium and EU students can be awarded grants to study at one of these partner institutions. Teaching staff are also exchanged among the members of the consortium.

The eight Erasmus Mundus Master Courses are:

  • Euroculture (contact person: Prof. Hub. Hermans)
  • Common European Master’s course in Biomedical Engineering (contact person: Prof. Bart Verkerke)
  • EM Master’s Programme in Evolutionary Biology (contact person: Prof. Franjo Weissing)
  • Euromaster in Theoretical Chemistry and Computational Modeling (contact person: Prof. Ria Broer)
  • Multiculturalism: Master’s degree in Learning and Teaching of Spanish in Multilingual and International Contexts (contact person: Dr R. de Jonge)
  • NOHA Joint Master’s Degree Programme in International Humanitarian Action (contact person: Prof. Joost Herman)
  • Clinical Linguistics (contact person: Prof. Roelien Bastiaanse)
  • Language & Communication Technology (contact person: Prof. Gisela Redeker)
