Who are EMMIRians?

So far, 7 cohorts of EMMIR students have graduated, while 2 cohorts are still in their studies. There are over 230 students, including around 60 current students and 170 graduates. Here are some numbers that can help give an overview of our diverse network on EMMIRians (updated January 2019, not including most recently graduated cohort 7):

Where are our students now?

As of September 2019, Cohort 8 (2018-2020) students are currently undergoing their third semester mobility. In December, they will meet in Oldenburg once again to present their thesis proposals at a colloquium of students and consortium members.  

Cohort 7 (2017-2019) recently graduated! Congratulations to you all, we are proud of your hard work. 


Cohort 9 (2019-2021) students have started their first semester with the notorious 'Intensive Phase' and are busy with readings, group presentations, and individual papers.
