About

AstroMundus - Astrophysics is a 2-years Erasmus+: Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degree course, at the University of Innsbruck, in Astronomy and Astrophysics offered by a Consortium of 5 partner Universities in Austria, Italy, Germany, and Serbia, with the participation of 4 associated research institutions.

Overview

The AstroMundus - Astrophysics course at the University of Innsbruck is co-funded by the Erasmus+ programme of the European Union.

Our aims

Its main objective is to provide top-ranked students with an excellent background in Astrophysics, to introduce them to the world of modern astrophysical research, and foster their future career in this field. At the same time, in the spirit of the Erasmus+: Erasmus Mundus programmes, we promote cultural exchanges between non-Euroepan and European students and academics.

AstroMundus students carry out their master studies in at least 2 and up to four of the above countries, in a stimulating and scientifically excellent international environment.

The official language of the course is English, but students are given the possibility to learn the languages of the host countries by attending language courses at the partner universities.

Successful students will be awarded a Joint Master Degree by all partner universities they have visited during the Master studies.

In addition they will obtain a Diploma Supplement to facilitate the recognition of their degree in other universities/countries.

At the end of each 2-years cycle of the Master Programme the best Master thesis of the cycle will be awarded a prize.
