Brief description of the degree course
Characteristics and objectives
AstroMundus is a 2-years Erasmus+: Erasmus Mundus Joint Masters Degree programme in Astronomy and Astrophysics (120 ECTS). The programme was initiated in 2009 as an Erasmus Mundus Masters Course and is now continuing within the framework of the new Erasmus+ programme of the European Union. The Masters Course is offered by a consortium of 5 partner universities in Austria, Italy, Germany, and Serbia, with the participation of 4 research institutions as associated partners in Italy, Serbia, and Germany.
The main objective of the programme is to provide top-ranked students with an excellent background in Astrophysics, to introduce them to the world of modern astrophysical research, and foster their future career in this field. At the same time, in the spirit of the Erasmus Mundus programmes, we promote cultural exchanges between non-European and European students and academics.
AstroMundus students carry out their master studies in at least 2 and up to four of these countries, in a stimulating and scientifically excellent international environment.
The official language of the course is English, but students are given the possibility to learn the languages of the host countries by attending language courses at the partner universities.
Successful students will be awarded a Joint Master Degree by all partner universities they have visited during the Master studies.In addition they will obtain a Diploma Supplement to facilitate the recognition of their degree in other universities/countries.
At the end of each 2-years cycle of the Master Programme the best master thesis of the cycle will be awarded a prize.

Occupational opportunities
The Astromundus Master in Astronomy allows to work in the field of research at university departments, astronomical observatories and international institutions as Eso, Esa, Nasa, possibly after earning the PhD title. It will also allows to work in industries that develop space activities, producing optical instruments in areas where the specific knowledge of an astronomer is particularly useful.
