Last year a group of European universities together with Erasmus Mundus have set up a programme to encourage young scientists to engage in fusion research. The aim of the European Master in Nuclear Fusion Science and Engineering Physics (FUSIONEP) programme is to provide a high-level multinational research-oriented education in fusion-related engineering physics, in close relation with the research activities of the partners, and with a well-integrated language and cultural experience. Erasmus Mundus is a co-operation and mobility programme in the field of higher education which promotes the European Union as a centre of excellence in learning around the world. Therefore the students will have the opportunity to study at three of the participating Universities and by this to experience different languages and cultures.

The programme applies to all nationalities, though for students from Non-European countries the deadline has already expired to allow for visa and scholarship processing. The FUSION-EP is open to all students who have a Bachelor‘s degree or a recognized equivalent academic degree of minimum 3 years study in physics. Applicants with another degree but with experience or knowledge in this field can be admitted on decision by the FUSION- EP Managing Board on the basis of CV and other evidence. English language skills must be proved by a TOEFL test. Application deadline is August 1, 2007.
