"The Euromasters programme has been a truly European and enriching experience, which offered great academic opportunities, including interdisciplinary classes with internationally renowned professors.

I spent two semesters in Bath and the last two semesters in Berlin, while I really appreciated that I could choose my own focus of study among a wide range of classes and topics.

At a personal level, I very much enjoyed the international and welcoming atmosphere on the Campus in Bath, and I’m grateful that I had the chance to meet so many inspiring people from across Europe and all over the world. This diversity has also been a great asset throughout our seminars, sparking fruitful discussions on the multiple facets of European integration and globalization.

I warmly recommend this programme to young graduates who are seeking to deepen their knowledge in European politics and societal issues, and who are interested in studying in an international environment.

After my graduation, I started working as a Carlo-Schmid Fellow in the Communications and Policy Coordination Team at the EU Delegation to the UN in Geneva. The Euromasters programme has definitely helped me a lot in developing skills and knowledge that have been very useful in my current work."

"The Euromasters program is a benchmark within an academic/professional field whose nature requires a thorough comprehension to analyse its constantly-evolving challenges and attain its multidimensional objectives. For this, the programme does not only meet high academic standards but also paves the way for the continuous development of multisectorial skills that determine the success of its graduates in endeavours that enact change, within Europe and beyond; the structure of the programme itself is a medium for learning and experiencing a wide array of elements and processes -in multicultural settings- that enable students to adapt to and enact change.

I currently work at a recently established international organisation in Germany, whose mandate is to strengthen the bi-regional association between the EU, Latin America and the Caribbean. Without the experiences, learnings and perspectives obtained during my time at the programme, this would not have been possible with such impact."
