AstroMundus is a 2-years Erasmus Mundus Masters Course in Astronomy and Astrophysics (120 ECTS) developed within a partnership of five Universities in four different countries:


AUSTRIA University of Innsbruck Institute of Astro and Particle Physics
GERMANY University of Goettingen Institute of Astrophysics
ITALY University of Padova Department of Physics and Astronomy
  University of Rome Department of Physics
SERBIA University of Belgrade Department of Astronomy

Its main objectives are to provide top-ranked students with an excellent background in Astrophysics, to introduce them to the world of modern astrophysical research, to foster their future career in this field and to promote cultural exchanges.

AstroMundus students carry out their master studies in at least two 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 Program the best master thesis of the cycle will be awarded a prize.
