The Consortium

A short history

The European Master 'Global Studies' started in 2005 at the Universities of Leipzig, London, Vienna and Wroclaw with four partner universities in Dalhousie (Canada), Santa Barbara (USA), Stellenbosch (South Africa), Sydney (Australia).

Since its beginning in 2005, the European Master 'Global Studies' has proven to be an attractive course. The number of applicants has risen from 180 for the 2005/06 academic year to over 340 for 2006/07. In September 2005 the European Master 'Global Studies' has been officially approved as an Erasmus Mundus Masters Course after it had been positively evaluated by a panel of independent academic experts and chosen by the Selection Committee of the European Commission. It was selected out of numerous proposals when Action 1 of the Erasmus Mundus programme was offered to the European academia for the funding period of 2005-2010.
