Objective The main objectives of the Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degree programme in Astronomy and Astrophysics are initiation in scientific research and applied training in Astronomy and Astrophysics.Course duration Two years (120 ECTS)Brief DescriptionThe various specialities of the partner institutions result in an increased offer of pathways for the students: Theoretical Astrophysics, Models, Simulations and Computation, as well as Observational Astrophysics based on data from the ground and from space and on the exploitation of modern data archives. Emphasis is put on the application of modern techniques both in the observational and theoretical/computational domain.During the first semester the students attend courses focused on basic learning in Astronomy and Astrophysics at the entrance university (University of Innsbruck). The second semester is spent at a second University of choice among the 2 Italian partner universities. The third semester is spent in one of the three partner institutions at Rome, Göttingen, or Belgrade depending on the astrophysical branches, which the students will select to specialise in. Finally the fourth semester is mainly devoted to the Master thesis (30 ECTS) that can be accomplished in any of the partner institutions. During this semester the students are given the possibility to attend additional advanced courses/ seminars, especially on topics related to their thesis work.An international experienceCourses are taught in English. Intensive tutoring of Master students is assured during the whole course of their Master studies. Also, English is the language of choice for tutoring and examinations. However, students have access to language courses within each of the partner Universities. A number of EU-funded scholarships are offered to the best qualified candidates.DiplomaStudents who successfully complete the requirements of the programme are awarded a joint Master degree (MSc in Astrophysics) by the Consortium universities where they accomplished the various parts of their Master studies. A joint Diploma Supplement covering the entire content of the Master programme is attached to the final degree. A prize for the best Master thesis is awarded at the end of each course edition.Website:
