IMCEERES Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degree Scholarship in Europe 2021

Good news! IMCEERES Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degree Scholarship is currently open. The European Union is offering the International Master in Central and East European, Russian and Eurasian Studies (IMCEERES) in 2021.

This challenging and innovative multiple degree program empowers scholars to understand the history of communism and why it collapsed, gaining detailer knowledge of the process of economic and political transformation in the previous communist states. To this end, the program is designed to offer a broad range of options for innovative study of the region’s shared Communist past and the ways in which this has molded – and continues to shape – the dynamics of post-Communist and post-Cold War transformation. The geographical area to be treated by this program, hence, extends across the wider post-Communist world, in a region that covers Central and Eastern Europe, Russia and the recently independent states of the Caucasus and Central Asia.

A research proposal submitted at the conclusion of semester 1 in first year will define future mobility patterns and study pathway diversification in semester 2. In 2nd year, scholars will remain under the same study pathway. The research proposal will have a solid influence on the allocation of the year 2 pathway partner, where scholars will embark on coursework.  It is envisaged that placements at external organizations will be made obtainable.

The periods of mobility are aimed to empower scholars to engage with a variety of perspectives on the three core themes of the program and promote valuable information and applied skills-based outcomes that will progress into future career opportunities.
