MITRA "Migrations transnationales"


MITRA — Erasmus Mundus Master

MITRA is an innovative programme of excellence at Master’s level funded by the ERASMUS Mundus Programme of the European Commission. MITRA is a bilingual (English and French) interdisciplinary programme taught over two years with a focus on transnational migration. 

Prompted by the widespread contemporary experience of transnational mobility and migration, MITRA aims to equip graduates with expertise in transnational migration issues and intercultural mediation.

For more information, see the MITRA Website 

The programme is offered by seven universities in Europe, Africa and Latin America, including UCC. The duration of the programme is twenty-four months and this period includes a semester of study in the host institution, Université de Lille and three further semesters in one of the other partner institutions, according to your specialized stream of choice.

Students who are accepted on the programme are eligible to receive scholarships funded through ERASMUS Mundus to cover study costs.
