Our ability to deliver the EMJMD EGEI for 2021-2023 intake will depend on an effective management of the consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic.

With the support of the EU and National Authorities, we have taken several decisions for mitigating and limiting the potentially negative effects of the pandemic on Master EGEI activities.

  • We will help applicants to overcome the consequences of travel restrictions by providing continuos support and using (if necessary during the initial phase of the course) distance learning tools.
  • The first term of the Master EGEI for 2021-2023 intake will be run in parallel at the University of Bari (Italy) as well as Xiamen University (China) in order give more opportunities to join in an effective way to students from different pats of the world. A deep coordination and the joint delivery of teaching in Italy and China will ensure that students and lecturers will work as a unique group.
  • The Master EGEI consortium and hosting partners will continuously provide timely information as well as health support and assistance.
  • As we all navigate in a continuously changing situation, a guiding principle that Master EGEI consortium will apply is the use of a “flexible approach” in order to ensure that risks and negative effects of Covid-19 are minimized.
  • We will aim to post updates on this website whenever we can regarding any changes to the delivery of the programme for the next academic year.
