IMCEERES is a unique international Master programme implemented by a consortium headed by the University of Glasgow (this university holds a prestigious 65th place in the QS ranking). The programme is designed to meet the needs of a variety of employees in major public, commercial and voluntary institutional settings who wish to acquire a specialised knowledge of Central and Eastern Europe, Russia and Eurasia. The International Masters in Central and East European, Russian and Eurasian Studies offers you the unique opportunity to study in three or four international universities, and to emerge with three Masters degrees from three separate institutions. Students spend their first semester at the University of Tartu, followed by a semester at the University of Glasgow. The first semester of year two is spent in one of the consortium's partner universities: Lobachevsky University, Jagiellonian University (Poland), KIMEP University (Kazakhstan), Corvinus University (Budapest, Hungary), National University ‘Kyiv Mohyla Academy’(Ukraine), Ilia State University (Georgia).
