Master in Applied Ecology Scholarships:

Environmental protection is the greatest current challenge to mankind as it plays a crucial role in economic and societal development throughout the world. By cleaving to this challenge, we will be able to generate sustainable development within human societies.

The understanding of direct and indirect effects of global change on biodiversity will be crucial for management and conservation of natural environments. Over the last decades, the analyses carried out by ecologists have revealed the great fragility of natural balances and the dramatic ecological consequences of unwise human activities.

The Erasmus Mundus Masters Course "European Master in Applied Ecology" (EMMC-EMAE), with the support of European commission, plans to form specialists able to develop and lead ecological projects throughout the world by providing them with a wide range of competences and skills, completed by a professional specialization in one of several leading fields of Ecology (Conservation, Toxicology, Functional ecosystem dynamics, Evolutionary ecology, Environmental sciences).

EMAE is an integrated Master of Sciences Programme designed by 4 European institutions with a wide-range leadership in Ecology:

  • UP - University of Poitiers (France, Coordinating institution),
  • CAU - Christian Albrechts Universität in Kiel (Germany),
  • UC - University of Coimbra (Portugal) and
  • UEA - University of East Anglia in Norwich (UK).

    The EMAE Master Course benefits of international networks throughout the world enlarging the opportunities of participation of overseas colleagues in the study programme and offers to students the possibility to carry out a part of their master's project in a partner institution (higher education institutions, NGOs, administrations, natural parks...).
