Program delivery

The programme duration is four semesters - always starting in the winter semester.

The first two semesters are regular study semesters. Excursions to Bad Liebenzell and Strasbourg in the first semester and to Brussels in the second semester are core parts of the European Studies modules.

Between the second and third semester (during the lecture-free period), you complete a work placement (internship) of at least 10 weeks. In the third semester you will pursue more in-depth studies.

The Master's thesis is written in the fourth semester. You do not necessarily have to remain in Fulda during this period. However, the thesis defence must be held in Fulda.

The languages of instruction in this degree programme are German and English.

Tuition fees

There's no getting around it - money is an important issue for students these days. The first piece of good news for students at Fulda University is that there are usually no tuition fees at universities in Germany! Thanks to generous subsidies and support from the state, students from Germany and international students alike have access to higher education at a very low cost.

There is, however, a semester fee of around €300. This fee helps to cover the cost of student services and student government and pays for your Semester Ticket, which entitles you to free public transport in Fulda and the federal state of Hesse.

Qualification

After you have passed the final examination, you will be awarded the title of Master of Arts (M.A.). The Master's degree in this study programme qualifies you to take on positions in the higher civil service.

Career opportunities

After completing the final examination, you will be awarded the title of Master of Arts in Intercultural Communication and European Studies. You will be qualified to take on a wide range of positions in supranational organisations or national organisations with a strong international, primarily European focus. Potential employers also include NGOs, professional associations, companies, public bodies, public administration etc.

As an ICEUS graduate, you possess communication skills that transcend linguistic and cultural borders and therefore command an expertise across various areas. This high level of skills is accompanied by a profound understanding of organisational structures and the backgrounds, shaping and perspectives of European integration. Given the enlargement of Europe, European integration offers you new and interesting professional challenges.
