Programme duration: two years (four semesters)
Study mode: full time
Suitable for: This programme is suitable for students seeking comprehensive training as experts in the contemporary challenges and realities facing Central and Eastern Europe and its neighbours. Intensive foreign language training is also an integral part of the curriculum. Students wishing to study Polish, Russian, German or French are highly encouraged to join CES.
Programme structure: The programme is structured around three predefined mobility periods at three different universities across Europe, Russia, and Eurasia. Also included is a fourth flexible mobility period during which you will undertake independent study. The mobility periods are designed to enable you to engage with a variety of perspectives on the programme’s core themes.
A research proposal submitted at the end of semester 1 in year 1 will determine future mobility patterns and study pathway diversification in semester 2. In year 2 you will continue under the same study pathway. The research proposal will have a strong influence on the allocation of the year 2 pathway partner, where you will undertake coursework. It is envisaged that placements at external organisations will be made available.
