The International Masters in Economy, State and Society (IMESS)

Erasmus Mundus - IMESS Scholarships

The International Masters in Economy, State and Society (IMESS) is an established two-year double degree Masters programme, taught in English and offered by a consortium of leading European universities headed by UCL - London’s research and teaching powerhouse and one of the top five universities worldwide (THES–QS 2009). IMESS draws on an unparalleled pool of resources to offer the definitive Masters course focusing on the economies, states and societies of Central and Eastern Europe.

The programme, recognised for its excellence by the European Union's Erasmus Mundus Programme, offers three distinct study tracks, reflecting the unique multidisciplinary expertise of the consortium institutions. The study tracks are:

* Politics and Security
* Economics and Business
* Nation, History and Society

Minimum Admission Requirements

All applicants should hold (or expect to obtain) an upper second class honours degree (or overseas equivalent) in a relevant subject area. Where the Bachelors degree is in an unrelated subject, candidates must demonstrate their interest in IMESS through the supplementary questionnaire.

All students whose first language is not English must be able to provide recent evidence that their spoken and written command of the English language is adequate for the programme. For IMESS admissions students must provide evidence of English proficiency - 'good' level in accordance with UCL English Language Policy.

UCL graduate studies application form


For entry in 2011 the Erasmus Mundus (EM) Scholarship deadlines are 17 December 2010 for Category A applications and 29 April 2011 for Category B applications. The final closing date for self-funded student applications is 29 April 2011. Applicants in the final stages of their undergraduate degree may apply but they must be able to present their transcript of marks by no later than 31 August of the relevant year of entry.

UCL is implementing a new online application system. Unfortunately, this means we will be unable to accept online IMESS applications until mid-October 2010. Please note that there is no disadvantage in waiting until after mid-October to submit your application. Decisions on the award of scholarships are not made until after the respective deadlines. If you wish to apply before mid-October you can send in a postal application to the UCL Registry.

VLIR-UOS Scholarships

VLIR-UOS awards scholarships to students from developing countries so that they can follow a master or training programme in Belgium. These scholarships cover all related expenses. Every year, VLIR-UOS awards up to 180 scholarships to first-year master students and 70 scholarships to training participants.

All programmes are specifically designed for people in positions of responsibility in civil society (e.g. universities, schools, NGOs, local communities, governments).

The target group for master programmes comprises students from developing countries. Training programmes are tailored to people from developing countries with a certain degree of professional experience.

Although these programmes are primarily oriented towards students and professionals from developing countries, they are also open to other people.

Applicants applying for both academic admission and a VLIR-UOS scholarship need to consider both the admission requirements and the scholarship criteria.
Applicants applying for academic admission but not for a scholarship simply need to fulfill only the admission requirements of the host university running the programme.

The host university is in charge of the academic admission of applications. Study results will be taken into consideration during the selection, but the most important academic selection criteria are relevant professional experience and prospects for applying the acquired insights after return to the developing country. The academic admission requirements are specific to every programme. Please peruse the requirements from the relevant programme.

A joint selection committee of VLIR-UOS and the host university is responsible for selecting scholarships. The host university – not the applicant – forwards the scholarship applications to the VLIR-UOS secretariat if the academic admission requirements are met. The VLIR-UOS scholarship criteria relate to the qualifications required of all scholarship applicants and selection criteria evaluated by the selection committee. Download the VLIR-UOS scholarship criteria at the bottom of this page.
