DEADLINE FOR APPLICATION FOR THE ACADEMIC YEAR 2006/2007: 17 MARCH 2006 DEADLINE FOR APPLICATION FOR THE ACADEMIC YEAR 2006/2007 ONLY for applicants from EU member states: 24 MARCH 2006
For application materials and further information, please contact any of the participating universities or visit the E.MA or EIUC websites. Candidates for admission should send two completed application forms to the EIUC/E.MA Secretariat by 17 March 2006 OR by 24 March ONLY for applicants from EU member states (date of the receipt of the application materials in Venice). The applications collected will be sent, according to the candidateâ€™s nationality, to the corresponding National Co-ordinating University, which will then make a preliminary selection. The Executive Committee of the European Masterâ€™s Degree will select non-EU candidates. The final list of admitted students will be decided by the Executive Committee. Only short listed candidates will be contacted in May 2006.
Admission requirements Applicants are required to hold a university degree of a high standard and must have 240 ECTS credits (with a 180 ECTS minimum university title/degree), normally in a field relevant to human rights, including disciplines in law, social sciences, and the humanities. Applicants completing the degree entry requirements subsequently to the application deadline are requested to provide a current transcript of exams. Eventual admittance into the programme will be conditional upon documentation of completed degree prior to the beginning of the new academic year. Fluency in English and the ability to understand lectures and read academic texts in French are also required as the programme is bilingual. Practical experience in the area of human rights in inter-governmental, governmental, or non-governmental organisations is helpful. The criteria used during the selection process are: academic ability and background, experience, motivation, and language competence. 75 places are allocated to EU citizens; 5 are reserved for citizens of the applicant countries to the EU (Bulgaria, Croatia, Romania, Turkey); and 10 places are allocated to non-EU citizens. All non-EU applicants are required to obtain a study visa, which they should request from the Italian Embassy in their home country. The visa must cover the entire duration of the academic year (September 2006 - September 2007) and is a precondition for enrolment.
Registration fee: 3000 Euro Enrolment fee: 100 Euro Students are responsible for their own accommodation during the first semester in Venice, but will receive a small subsidy partially covering the housing costs. They can receive assistance in finding accommodation or may choose to arrange this by themselves. For the second semester, all students will similarly receive a modest subsidy but are otherwise responsible for their own expenses. Only a very limited number of students might benefit from financial support in the form of a full or partial tuition waiver. If participation in the E.MA Programme is conditional upon receiving financial support, this must be clearly indicated in the application form.
