International opportunities for students
Double degree with Universität Graz e Masaryk University

Who can apply?

 1st year UniTrento students of the master's degree course in:

  • Sociology and Social Research

with a B2 English level
These requirements will be assessed when applying for the UniTrento call which is published every year in autumn. Selected students will have to formally register to the Cultural Sociology Programme according to the instructions they will receive by the host degree-awarding Insititution.

Waht is the Cultural Sociology Programme?

The Cultural Sociology Degree is a II level international programme offered by the following universities of the Consortium:

  • UniTrento, Karls-Franzens-Universität Graz (Austria)
  • Masaryk University, Brno (Czech Republic)
  • University of Zadar (Croatia) 

Mobility scheme

The following mobility scheme is possible:

  • the first 60 credits are completed at the university of origin ("entry university")
  • at least 30 credits at the Karls-Franzens-Universität Graz or at the Masaryk University (both "degree awarding institutions")
  • the remaining 30 ECTS credits can be made in one of the following locations:
  1. at the home university;
  2. at the Karls-Franzens-Universität Graz, also by extending the mobility for a double degree by one semester;
  3. at Masaryk University, also by extending the mobility for a double degree by one semester;
  4. at the University of Zadar (Croatia), without the issuing of the local degree but with a final certificate attesting that mobility has taken place and without UniTrento double degree scholarship. In this case, the selected student must apply to obtain a scholarship under the Erasmus + II call.

At the end of the 120 credit course, the student receives the UniTrento title and, based on the destination of the mobility, the title of one of the two degree "awarding institutions" as illustrated in the mobility scheme in the downlaods.

What is the added value?

In Italy and abroad, a double degree is always an added value. Not only the experts say it, you just have to browse through the job offers to realize that companies and organizations are looking for international and open-minded profiles, able to work in multicultural teams and to face ever new global challenges: these are the workers of the future.

What are the requirements at the time of departure?

  • have obtained all credits of the 1st year
  • further assessment might be done by the Consortium at the moment of the application

The requisites will be checked just before the mobility, between August and beginning of September.
