Université de Montréal, Université catholique de Louvain and Université Saint-Louis – Brussels announce the launch of a transatlantic Master’s degree in European and International Studies. Admissions are open for the fall of 2021.

This double degree is based on close collaboration between professors from the Centre Jean Monnet in Montreal, the Centre for International Studies and Research of the University of Montreal (CÉRIUM), the Interfaculty School of European Studies, the Louvain-Europe Institute of Political Science and the Institute of European Studies of Saint-Louis.

The Master’s degree lasts two years and leads to a dual degree. The first year, which focuses on international studies, takes place in Quebec and the second year, which focuses on European studies, takes place in Belgium, the host country of the European institutions.

Applicants can apply to either Université de Montréal or Université catholique de Louvain, where they will remain enrolled for the duration of the programme. At Université de Montréal, applications will be accepted until 23 April 2021.

Students admitted to Université de Montréal will be able to apply for a mobility grant for the second year of the programme taking place in Belgium.
