Each of these institutions is expert in their respective part of the Global-MINDS educational programme. Graduates will be awarded a joint master degree. A group of world-leading scholars from different countries also contributes to the delivery and quality assurance of the programme. An international network of associate partners – private companies, civil society organisations, public service providers, practitioners, policy makers, governmental organisations and NGOs – assures high quality student internships and assistance in graduates’ employment.
Global-MINDS has received a grant from the European Union to implement the master and fund a total of 58 scholarships of various kinds (programme countries, partner countries, and targeted regions) over 5 years, including 3 classes of students.
