Erasmus Mundus Scholarships in Agricultural, Food and Environmental Policy Analysis



Brief description:

The European Master in Agricultural, Food and Environmental Policy Analysis (AFEPA) aims at providing a high quality education in designing and assessing public policies targeted to the agricultural and food sector as well as the rural environment. This European Master responds to the increasing need to better understand and anticipate the various and often complex socio-economic and environmental effects of these policies either in a functionning market economy as in the European Union or in economies in a development or transition phase.

At the end of the course, graduated students will be awarded a double degree.

Host Institution(s):


The European Master is jointly organised by five leading European educational and research institutions: the Corvinius University of Budapest (CUB) in Hungary, the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences (SLU) in Sweden, the Rheinische-Friedrich-Wilhelms Universität Bonn (UBonn) in Germany, the Université catholique de Louvain (UCL) in Belgium and the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (UPC) in Spain.

Field of study:

The European Master offers a two-year academic curriculum with integrated and advanced theoretical, methodological and empirical courses in economics and quantitative methods as well as in agricultural, food and environmental sciences, agricultural and trade policy, environmental and natural resource policy, rural development policy and agribusiness management and market analysis.

Number of Awards:

Not specified.

Target group:

Non-European Students from emerging/developing countries.

Scholarship value/inclusions:

Normally, the scholarship amounts to 21,000 Euros per academic year.
