calendar_month 13 Sep 2010, 00:00
A Masters Programme offered by a European Consortium. The Master Course ‘Global Studies - A European perspective' is an interdisciplinary, research-based Master offered by a consortium of five European universities:

- Roskilde Universitet
- London School of Economics and Political Science
- Universität Leipzig
- Universität Wien
- Uniwersytet Wrocławski

The European Commission is supporting this Master Course with a generous grant scheme for non-European students and a mobility scheme which links the consortium to six non-European partners:

- Dalhousie University, Canada
- Fudan University, China
- Jawaharlal Nehru University, India
- Macquarie University, Australia
- University of California at Santa Barbara, USA
- University of Stellenbosch, South Africa


Alumni co-ordinator and Alumni meeting
In order to further professionalise the alumni work of the Master’s course in Global Studies an Alumni co-ordinator has been engaged at the beginning of this year. The co-ordinator himself graduated from the programme in fall 2009 and is thus completely familiar with the programme as well as the expectations towards a satisfying alumni work.

Ian is responsible for providing all alumni and graduate students with information on job- and phd-opportunities as well as on conferences related to the field of Global Studies. He is also responsible for issuing the Global Studies Newsletter. Another major task will be the organisation of the second Global Studies alumni meeting that is envisaged to take place at the end of November 2010 in Vienna. You can contact Ian under: emgs.alumni[at] We wish him all the best for his tasks.

Global Studies 'New Passage to India'

The Global Studies programme successfully submitted a grant application for the “New Passage to India” programme that is managed by the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) and financed by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF). The aim of this programme is to increase the mobility of German students to India.

In the next years German Global Studies students that will pursue a study term at the Jawaharlal Nehru University in Dehli will be able to profit from the DAAD/BMBF grants.
