The European Masters in Sport and Exercise Psychology programme (EMSEP) is a joint programme organised by four leading European universities in the field: the University of Jyväskylä, Finland; the University of Leipzig, Germany; the University of Thessaly, Greece, and Lund University, Sweden. The two-year full-time EMSEP programme is taught completely in English and it offers education opportunities for students of all nationalities. EMSEP provides you with high-quality teaching in a truly international environment, study abroad period, valuable hands-on experience through internship, networking with fellow students and experts, and a double degree.
The EMSEP consortium offers scholarships for both European and non-European students. The scholarships are funded by the European Commission and will be awarded to the best students on a competitive basis. There are eighteen scholarships available in the programme.
