Scholarships for International Masters in Economy, State and Society

Scholarship: up to 42 000 Euros
Deadline: January 21, 2009
Open to: third countries citizens + Balkan countries students

Course description:
Building on the existing strengths of six leading European universities, this Masters programme in Economy, State & Society situates the study of the emerging economies and societies of Central and Eastern Europe (CEE) in a global context. The multidisciplinary, language-based programme is
organised along four tracks: Economics & Business; Politics & Security; Nation & Society; and History & Culture.

The states of CEE have undergone far-reaching political, economic and social change since 1989, culminating in the 2004 and 2007 European Union enlargements. Understanding the comparative economic advantages of the CEE states, their relationship with the EU border states, the importance of
migration flows, health and security for the wider region as well as the obstacles faced in developing a truly knowledge-based economy are essential both for the European and the global community.

This MA will raise the global expertise in this area by addressing these key issues in the context of the region’s economies, states and societies.
Participants spend the first year at University College London and the second at a university in the CEE country whose language they have been studying. In year 1: all students: study a language; take electives relating to their specialist track; undertake research methodology courses; and participate in a variety of research skills modules – including ‘Academic writing in English’. In year 2, students continue to receive language training, produce a 15-20,000-word research dissertation in English and take additional specialised electives. All non-language elements of the course are conducted in English.

Graduates of the programme will have acquired language competence, cultural awareness and a deeprooted knowledge and understanding of the economies, states and societies of CEE. Graduates will have developed a set of skills suited to entering a career in the private or public sectors or for developing a research career in academia.

Who is IMESS for?

The Masters programme is designed to attract and challenge the brightest international students (final year undergraduates may apply) as well as professionals wishing to retrain to achieve European expertise and meet the challenges of the changing global environment. Students from all countries may apply to the programme. Evidence of English language ability is essential but there are no other language pre-requisites. Non-EU students, including those from candidate countries (Turkey, Croatia, FYR Macedonia) are invited to apply for an Erasmus Mundus Scholarship and there are also scholarship opportunities for EU students.

Additionally, for established International Scholars the IMESS consortium offers a number of three-month Research Fellowships to be spent at one of the consortium universities conducting research in the spirit of IMESS and contributing to the teaching of IMESS.

Erasmus Mundus Scholarships

The Erasmus Mundus (EM) scholarships are European Union funded scholarships to support non-EU students (EU students see below) in studying selected European Masters programmes, including IMESS.

For entry in 2009 there will be approximately 17 EM scholarships for non-EU students. In addition, applicants from the Western Balkans and Turkey, are invited to apply for an equivalent scholarship under a special EU regional 'window' targeting applicants from the following countries: Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, the FYR Macedonia, Montenegro, Serbia, Kosovo (under UNSC Resolution 1244/99) and Turkey.

Scholarship applicants satisfying the Erasmus Mundus criteria are eligible to apply for one of a number of Erasmus Mundus Scholarships of €21,000 per year (€42,000 in total). Scholarship holders must pay tuition fees to the IMESS consortium of €14,800 per year (€29,600 in total). These monies will be deducted from the scholarship and scholarship holders will receive a balance on a quarterly basis.

The scholarship therefore covers the fees, associated with attendance at two of Europe's leading universities, but does NOT cover all of the costs associated with attending the Programme. Rather, participants will need some additional source of funding to cover the full costs associated with accommodation, food, travel and books. For example, in year one (all students are in London) it is estimated that the average living costs for a single graduate student for an academic year are approximately 12,000 Euros. Living costs in year 2 vary.

Erasmus Mundus scholarship holders will also benefit from the insurance provided through the European Executive Agency (full details at Erasmus Mundus Insurance). Students may wish to top up this insurance with a supplementary private policy.

The next Erasmus Mundus Scholarship application deadline for IMESS is January 21 2009 – UCL registry must have received your full application by no later than this date. Please note that students can only apply to a maximum of 3 Erasmus Mundus Programmes in any one year.

For full details on 'how to apply' please refer to the 'Application Process' page of this website.

The possibilities for financial aid and assistance are different depending on whether you are an entering student, or a continuing student.
For entering students

If you are entering the program and have a high academic standing, you can receive financial aid in the form of entrance scholarships and teaching assistantships. These funds are awarded by the Faculty of Graduate Studies based primarily on prior academic performance, and are not available for students entering a qualifying year program, for part time students, or for returning students.

If your application is received by March 1, and you have been accepted for full time study, you will automatically be considered for teaching assistantships and scholarships unless you indicate on your application that you do not wish to be considered. Decisions about funding for entering students are announced in April.

Entrance Scholarships
Entrance Scholarships are awarded on a competitive basis to entering students either in combination with TAships, or on their own. Entrance scholarships are normally given only for the first three terms of study in a 12 month period (i.e. Fall, Winter and Summer term).

Teaching Assistantships
Teaching Assistantships (TAships) provide students with employment in the university for a maximum of 10 hours a week during academic terms. If you are awarded a TAship, you will be provided up to two years of fall - winter term support (i.e. a maximum of four terms). A student may request that one of the supported terms be a summer term; however, such a request will only be granted if there is adequate demand for TAs. Partial TAships, requiring 5 hours a week rather than 10, are sometimes offered.

TAships are decided by the beginning of the term, and as far as is possible, placements are made according to the student's interests and/or program of study. Most TAs assist in the Writing Tutorial Service, in credit ESL classes, in Modern Language classes or in undergraduate courses in Linguistics and Applied Language Studies.

European Master in Informatics (EuMi)

Wednesday, 20 May 2009 20:11

Scholarship: up to 42 000 euros
Deadline: May 20,2009
Open to: non-EU students

Course description:
The University of Trento (Italy), the RWTH Aachen University (Germany), and the University of Edinburgh (Scotland) are offering a two-year Joint Masters Programme, named European Master in Informatics (EuMI). The objective is to educate professionals who will understand advanced techniques, tools, and methodologies in the field of Computer Science, and who will be able to put this knowledge into practice in key domains of application. In particular, EuMI offers three areas of specialisation in Net-Centric Informatics, Life-Science Informatics, and Embedded Systems Informatics. These are application domains that, being emergent, rapidly evolving, and of growing impact on the society, require specialised competencies not covered by more traditional degree programmes.

For each area of specialisation, a joint curriculum is defined which involves two Universities. The student undertaking the Erasmus Mundus Master’s curriculum will visit both Universities, taking courses focussing on advanced topics in theoretical and practical Computer Science within a selected area of specialisation. Courses are taught in English. Students will also have the opportunity to take courses on the culture and language of the visited European countries. At the end of the programme, a Master’s Thesis will be prepared on a research topic jointly selected with the two host Universities.

On the successful completion of EuMi, students will be awarded a Master of Informatics and will receive a degree from each of the Universities where they spent a part of their study: a “Laurea Specialistica in Informatica” (“Specialist Degree in Computer Science”) by the University of Trento,
a “Master of Science in Computer Science” by RWTH Aachen University, a “Master of Science in Informatics” by the University of Edinburgh.

The EuMI programme is intended for a small number of top-level international students. In order to guarantee a ratio between the teachers involved in the Joint Master and the EuMI students of close to one, a maximum of 30 students per year will be selected. Candidates should have a solid background in basic Computer Science disciplines and a keen interest in the fields of Net-Centric Informatics, Embedded Systems Informatics, or Life-Sciences Informatics. Prerequisites are a first level degree in Computer Science or closely-related disciplines and a fluent knowledge of spoken and written English.

Admission requirements and selection criteria

Students are accepted in the program regardless of sex, age, or nationality. A student to be accepted must fulfil the following requirements:

* A first level (at least three years) degree in Computer Science or closely related disciplines, awarded by an internationally recognised university-level institution.
Students who have not yet completed their first degree, but expect to graduate before August 31 2008 can apply provided that they will obtain the degree and supply the EuMI secretariat with a degree certificate by August 31.
* Fluent written and spoken English knowledge, certified by either an IELTS score of at least 6.0, a TOEFL score of at least 550 (paper-based) / 217 (computer-based) / 81 (internet-based) or CAE score of at least C; students with higher English scores (IELTS 6.5; TOEFL 580 / 237 / 88; CAE B or A) will be preferred. Student who have not yet a certificate, but who expect to have it before August 31, can apply to EuMI. If selected, the admission will be conditional on the receipt of the English certificate by EuMI before August 31.
Applicants who are Nationals of the exonerated Countries (please see list in the FAQ ) do not have to submit a language certificates. IF YOU ARE NOT IN THE EXONERATED LIST, YOU NEED AN OFFICIAL ENGLISH LANGUAGE CERTIFICATE, EVEN IN CASE OF ENGLISH SPEAKING ACADEMIC PROGRAMMES.

Students will be selected according to the following criteria:

* Profile: academic records, work experience, other related qualifications

* Research & Development experience
* Motivation
* Reference letters

A maximum number of 20 students will be selected for the academic year 2009-10.
