The International Masters in Economy, State and Society (IMESS) is an established two-year double degree Masters programme, taught in English and offered by a consortium of leading European universities headed by UCL - London’s research and teaching powerhouse and one of the top five universities worldwide (THES–QS 2009). IMESS draws on an unparalleled pool of resources to offer the definitive Masters course focusing on the economies, states and societies of Central and Eastern Europe.
The programme, recognised for its excellence by the European Union's Erasmus Mundus Programme, offers three distinct study tracks, reflecting the unique multidisciplinary expertise of the consortium institutions. The study tracks are:
* Politics and Security * Economics and Business * Nation, History and Society
Minimum Admission Requirements
All applicants should hold (or expect to obtain) an upper second class honours degree (or overseas equivalent) in a relevant subject area. Where the Bachelors degree is in an unrelated subject, candidates must demonstrate their interest in IMESS through the supplementary questionnaire.
All students whose first language is not English must be able to provide recent evidence that their spoken and written command of the English language is adequate for the programme. For IMESS admissions students must provide evidence of English proficiency - 'good' level in accordance with UCL English Language Policy. * UCL graduate studies application form
For entry in 2011 the Erasmus Mundus (EM) Scholarship deadlines are 17 December 2010 for Category A applications and 29 April 2011 for Category B applications. The final closing date for self-funded student applications is 29 April 2011. Applicants in the final stages of their undergraduate degree may apply but they must be able to present their transcript of marks by no later than 31 August of the relevant year of entry.
UCL is implementing a new online application system. Unfortunately, this means we will be unable to accept online IMESS applications until mid-October 2010. Please note that there is no disadvantage in waiting until after mid-October to submit your application. Decisions on the award of scholarships are not made until after the respective deadlines. If you wish to apply before mid-October you can send in a postal application to the UCL Registry.
