further information:

The EuMIGS network represents a comprehensive selection of the most established and high-quality Master’s programs in Europe. The network involves 13 partner institutes in 10 European countries of which 7 are part of the Double Degree Master’s program. EuMIGS offers the opportunity to obtain a double degree in the field of Migration Studies or to spend a semester at a partner university as an EuMIGS Exchange Student.

The double degree program allows IMIB students to continue the second year of their Master’s studies at one of the partner universities in Europe. During this year, students attend courses and write their Master’s thesis. Supervisors generally come from both programs. Upon successful completion, students are issued a Master’s degree by both the host and the home universities.
