Scholarship for Non-EU Students for the MPhil in European Studies 2014/15

The MPhil in European Studies is a unique interdisciplinary program focusing on European identity and the development of the idea of Europe. As opposed to most similar degrees that discuss almost exclusively the development of the European Union and the process of political and economic integration, the one-year course at Trinity provides a complex discussion of Europe. Europe is not merely understood as a political project, but also as an idea, and as a form of identity. While the program is rooted in cultural history and cultural studies modules are made available to students in comparative literature, history, classics, textual and visual studies and political science. Students thus have the opportunity to learn from a rich diversity of different academic approaches to Europe.

The one-year scholarship will consist of full non-EU fee remission and a stipend of €8,000 in the 2014/15 academic year.
