Master's students

Innovative offers for master's education

CIVICA brings together 50,000 students and 10,000 faculty from eight world-renowned higher education institutions across Europe. 

By strengthening inter-university and cross-national mobility, we are working towards a physically and digitally connected campus. This will allow students to engage in transnational academic experiences, well beyond any one institutional or national context.

At master's level, CIVICA members are building on existing, successful dual degree programmes to design the future of master's education in the social sciences. 

An increasing number of students from the alliance will be able to benefit from innovative formats such as joint master's courses, the Europeanship multi-campus course, and a European Policy Lab.
