The ASC network aims at preparing students to become experts and develop international skills towards professional industrial careers in spectroscopic characterization of matter and/or doctoral studies.
The two-year ASC programme has reached a high level of harmonization, with a single Master's programme scheme applicable at each partner institution and thus yielding to a better integration into the European scheme.
All successful students receive a multiple degree from the institutions where they attended courses.
In the 3-year BAES programme, you study the fundamental aspects and values of the European Union as well as European states, institutions and societies. Adopting a multidisciplinary approach, you reflect on the role of Europe in the world and master the research skills needed to analyse key issues related to Europe. Through the extensive mobility programme, you get first-hand experience of European environments and cultures.
This joint programme is organised by eight research-intensive universities within the Una Europa alliance. You choose two to three destinations out of eight countries. An optional winter school allows for additional short-term blended mobility.
