EMA, The European Master’s Programme in Human Rights and Democratisation
Second Round Deadline:
30 March 2020
12 May 2020
The Global Campus is mindful of how the COVID-19 pandemic is causing major disruptions to our lives, both professional and personal. While we are moving forward as planned with the organisation of the 2020/2021 EMA Programme at this moment in time, we have extended the application deadline. We will accept applications until 12 May, but please note that these applications will not be eligible for financial aid because of the lack of sufficient processing time.
Fees and Expenses
The tuition fee for the academic year 2020/2021 is €5500 (plus enrolment fee of €150). Tuition fees cover the following: all courses of the European Master’s Programme in Human Rights and Democratisation, both in the first and second semester; reading materials for the first semester; tutoring, access to Global Campus' specialised library; individual access to our closed e-learning environment; use of available IT facilities (including wireless area and computer room), and the field trip.*
Successful applicants will receive a letter of admission and will be requested to pay the fees upon acceptance of the offer. Payments can be made via bank transfer in one of the following ways:
full amount within 2-4 weeks from the date of the letter of admission;
two instalments: the first within 2-4 weeks from the date of the letter of admission and the second at a specified later date, typically early or mid-July.
All applicants are requested to pay an application processing fee of €50 before submitting their application.
Students bear the responsibility to cover their full living and housing expenses prior to their arrival in Venice (estimated at a minimum of €850 per month).
Students are responsible for their own accommodation during both the first semester in Venice and the second semester at the hosting university.
The EMA Office is available to provide advice and suggestions for accommodation. See these useful links for independent house hunting. Depending on the choice of accommodation, the anticipated rent per each student could range from a minimum of €300 to a maximum of €700 per month, with utilities and condominium expenses ranging from €85 to €250 per month.
For the second semester, EMA students carry the responsibility for all accommodation arrangements. Accommodation costs vary depending on the second semester destination, due to the differences in the cost of living in different European countries.
* The annual field trip is subject to final confirmation and availability of budgetary resources.
