Torino - Salonicco | European Studies Double Degree Master Program (ESIS)

Locations: Turin/Thessaloniki
Duration: 2 years (one year of mobility at the partner university)
Places available: up to 20 reserved for students from Turin + up to 20 reserved for students from Thessaloniki
Language: English
Scientific coordinator: Giovanni Finizio
Didactic coordinator: Anna Caffarena

Under the agreement between the Department of Cultures, Politics and Society of the University of Turin (hereinafter referred to as 'CPS'), and the University of Thessaloniki - School of Political Sciences (hereinafter referred to as 'AUTh'), students enrolled in the Master’s Degree Course in International Studies (Corso di Laurea magistrale in Scienze Internazionali LM-52) will be able to carry out their first year of studies at the University of Thessaloniki following an integrated study plan.

At the end of the program, two degrees will be awarded:

  • Master’s Degree in International Studies (Laurea magistrale in Scienze Internazionali) (UniTo)
  • Master's Degree in International Studies: Specialisation in European Studies (AUTh)

Participation in the international program envisages an integrated study plan, which, unlike other forms of mobility, has been previously approved by both partner universities to enable all participants to follow the same higher education pathway. The integrated study plan also enables students to complete the university course within the agreed timeframe through agreed recognition of credits for all activities carried out at the partner institution.

At the end of this structured mobility program, participants write their master’s thesis in English under the supervision of a member of the academic staff of one of the two partner universities. Students discuss their dissertation in English or in Italian, once only, at the University of Turin or the University of Thessaloniki.

Application procedure for candidates enrolled in the third year of a Bachelor Degree Programme at UniTo

Interested candidates enrolled in the third year of a Bachelor Degree Programme at UniTo must apply via the Erasmus Mobility Call for Studies and may express a maximum of two preferences. However, the choice of the Turin-Thessaloniki double degree (destination G THESSAL01, PG level) must be indicated as the first preference. The indication of the double degree as a second preference will not be taken into account.

Candidates will undergo a face-to-face interview to assess their language skills and eligibility for the program.

The criteria used for selection are based on the university curriculum, language knowledge and skills and the reasons for the choice. Students taking part in the programme must demonstrate a level of English language at least B2 of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR).

Another call for applications will be launched in Spring for UniTo and non-UniTo students.

The CPS Department reserves the right to open or not to open this second call also to UniTo students depending on the availability of funds and the number of candidates selected through the Erasmus call.

The winning students will receive the mobility grant provided within the Erasmus Mobility Call for Studies.

For the Call to be held in the spring, a variable number of scholarships may be made available to selected students; for more information, please consult the dedicated page.
