    The Euromasters programmes offer a genuinely outstanding and unrivalled international learning experience, qualifying graduates for a wide range of top jobs in European and international institutions.

    The programmes are unique, in that students study at two or three different sites chosen from a group of prestigious world-class institutions, together with students from a wide range of different countries.

    Sites within the Euromasters Consortium available to study at include:

    * University of Bath
    * Freie Universität Berlin
    * Humboldt Universität zu Berlin
    * Universidad Carlos III de Madrid
    * Sciences Po Paris
    * Charles University, Prague
    * Università degli Studi di Siena
    * University of Washington (Seattle)

    Students will gain a broad comparative understanding of European Union (EU), US politics, policy and social evolution as well as specialist knowledge of key issues in the Euro-Atlantic area.

    Students take two taught semesters at one or two partner sites, after the opening Core Module at Bath, followed by the completion of a 15,000 word dissertation, to be submitted by September in the second year.

    Students who successfully complete the programme will receive an MA degree which is jointly awarded by the University of Bath on behalf of the Euromasters Consortium and which is fully recognised in the countries of all participating universities and throughout the EU and beyond.

    Learning and teaching

    The Euromasters programme is a truly international experience with regard to teaching, learning and living.

    Our programmes are modular, consisting of self-contained units, taught and assessed on a semester basis. As you progress through each semester and successfully pass the examinations, you will receive credit for the units, thus providing you with a clear indication of your academic progress.

    Teaching takes the form of lectures, classes and seminars. Lectures are quite formal, whereas classes and seminars involve interaction between the lecturer and a small number of students for study skills and discussion.

    Teaching methods will vary across the consortium according to cultural practices.

    Methods of assessment

    Assessment consists of a combination of coursework essays, class exercises, projects, oral presentations and examinations.

    We also place strong emphasis on developing presentation and discussion/communication skills which, in many units, is part of the assessed work.

    UK requirements for international applications

    Universities in the United Kingdom use a centralized system of undergraduate application: University and College Admissions Service (UCAS). It is used by both domestic and international students. Students have to register on the UCAS website before applying to the university. They will find all the necessary information about the application process on this website. Some graduate courses also require registration on this website, but in most cases students have to apply directly to the university. Some universities also accept undergraduate application through Common App (the information about it could be found on universities' websites).

    Both undergraduate and graduate students may receive three types of responses from the university. The first one, “unconditional offer” means that you already reached all requirements and may be admitted to the university. The second one, “conditional offer” makes your admission possible if you fulfill some criteria – for example, have good grades on final exams. The third one, “unsuccessful application” means that you, unfortunately, could not be admitted to the university of you choice.

    All universities require personal statement, which should include the reasons to study in the UK and the information about personal and professional goals of the student and a transcript, which includes grades received in high school or in the previous university.

Students are expected to be fluent or near-fluent in English.Applicants must demonstrate clear evidence of ability to work academically at the appropriate level in the language of instruction at their chosen Specialist Module sites.

    A limited number of competitive fee reduction scholarships are available in recognition of high academic achievement (the equivalent of a first class Honours degree or, exceptionally, a high 2:1 degree) from the University of Bath. There will be a total of six scholarships at the level of £1,000 for students from EU countries and £2,000 for students from outside the EU.
