Call for Applications: 2018 IMSISS Scholarship Competition

Applications to the 2018 IMSISS scholarship competition and programme will open on Monday 2nd October 2017 and will close on Friday 26th January 2018.

The International Master in Security, Intelligence and Strategic Studies (IMSISS) is a 24 month Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degree (EMJMD) developed by a consortium of four European universities – Charles University in Prague (Czech Republic), Dublin City University (Ireland), University of Glasgow (UK), and the OTH Regensburg (Germany).

Students on this degree programme will examine a broad range of contemporary security challenges, such as terrorism, civil war and conflict, mass migration, energy supply security, cyber security and new technologies, and transnational and serious organised crime. Students will also explore the intelligence and strategic approaches used by governmental and non-governmental actors to combat these threats.

The degree adopts a unique approach to the study of security by combining theoretical, applied and empirical knowledge and skill sets. Students will have the opportunity to meet with and work alongside a range of academics and researchers from international partner universities and think tanks from around the world, as well as practitioner experts from governmental and industry security and defence sectors.


Please note that this is a very popular programme and unless you have a minimum 2:1 (UK degree) or national equivalent undergraduate honours degree it is unlikely you will be made an offer. If you are very close to the equivalent grade but do not quite make it we can look at your grades and if you have some relevant work experience that can help, but we cannot guarantee entry until an assessment has been made. You must apply to the programme for an assessment to be made.


There are scholarships available for this programme. Please visit our website for full details. Other scholarships are also available and you should check our website for details and application deadlines.


The main programme application deadline is the 26th January 2018 and coincides with the scholarship deadline. If there are still self-funded places available, applications may re-open in May 2018.

Classes start in September 2018 and you will be expected to attend induction sessions from the week before.
