Global Studies Programme welcomed 73 new students

The EMG consortium has welcomed this fall 73 new students in the Masters course. For the first time students had the opportunity to study one entire year at Ghent University (Belgium), which joined the programme this year as a full partner. Some 10 students made advantage of it and started their studies in Ghent, where Julie Carlier (coordinator at Ghent) and her colleagues gave the students a warm welcome, which one of the students described as a “truly spectacular support”.

The students from all EMGS study places will come together during the winter school in Payerbach at the beginning of December for the first time. With the new group of students, originating from 33 different countries around the world, the international atmosphere will truly be felt again this year.

Aside from the interest to learn more about global processes in an interdisciplinary way, students have highlighted the international atmosphere as well as the variety of mobility tracks as the major reason to start the programme.

The EMGS Consortium wishes all students an enriching study period both inside and outside of the classroom.
