    Programme Description

    The "European Master in Applied Ecology" (EMAE) is an integrated Masters Programme designed by 4 Universities with a wide-range leadership in Ecology: the University of Poitiers (UP France, Co-ordinator), Christian Albrechts Universität in Kiel (CAU Germany), the University of Coimbra (UC Portugal) and the University of East Anglia in Norwich (UEA UK).

    The EMAE consortium involved 5 non EU official partners: Universidade Federal do Rio Grande do Sul in Porto Alegre (UFRGS Brazil), Universidad San Francisco de Quito (USFQ Ecuador), University of Georgia in Athens (UGA USA), University of Adelaide (UA Australia) and University of Otago in Dunedin (UNZ New Zealand). The programme is also linked to Rede Verde Conservation Network which includes institutions and NGOs in South and North Americas and Europe.

    Each year, 24-30 students (Europeans and non Europeans) are welcomed in Poitiers where an integrative period and an introductory programme (from September to December) combine scientific courses and intensive language training (in French, German or Portuguese). From January to March, students attend a course programme in Environmental sciences in Norwich.

    From April to July, students are either in Coimbra or Kiel for a focused programme and field course. The second year, the year of specialization, is carried out in one of the four institutions (6-8 students). At the end of the curriculum, students are awarded in Poitiers and present their Masters project during a farewell congress open to the incoming students. The teaching language is mainly English although some parts are offered in French or Portuguese.
