Das Beste: The EMFOL MSc in Animal-Derived Foods met my expectations of a world-class academic programme. My professors are basically the authors of some of the books and journal articles that I have based my previous and current research on. Further, they are very approachable and motivating, especially in pursuing deeper knowledge and experience in food science. Lastly the international student department is highly efficient and reliable. You are assured that you are well taken care of.

JEMES - Joint European Master Programme in Environmental Studies

Almudena García i Sastre
5.0 01.09.2012
Das Beste: I was on the York-CEU mobility track. York provided a strong theoretical focus on public administration and public policy, while CEU’s array of classes and rigorous attention to practical application of policy skills vastly increased my ambition for future employment. Further, the diverse student body allowed me to become familiar with systems and institutions across the world in a manner in which I never thought possible. These scholastic attributes combined with the opportunity to live in two magnificent – if diametrically different – European cities, proved to be a unique and awesome experience that I would recommend to anyone. Currently, I am working at the Center for Media and Communication Studies, where I am continuing work that I began during my studies at CEU, and have initiated a new project on Internet Freedom of Expression in coordination with an international NGO.

MUNDUS MAPP - Erasmus Mundus Master's in Public Policy

5.0 01.09.2011
Das Beste: My two years as an Erasmus Mundus scholar has transformed my life in surprising ways. I came into the program having already worked in a professional environment for a number of years, and I had strong expectations for what I needed from the program. Yet I found that while I indeed gained the tools I desired, the program offered me much more.
