Hello there!

Welcome to the website of the Europa Master Association – Dijon Opole Mainz, or short EMA-DOM: the students’ association for the trinational Europa Master programme. The association was founded in April 2015, on the initiative of the first students of Europa Master.

EMA-DOM has been designed as a means for current and former Europa Master students to get in contact with students from other promotions. It is the roof under which all Europa Master students and alumni can gather, go on a study trip, leave behind the study stress and discover Polish, German, French and European culture!

What is Europa Master?


The Europa Master programme is a trinational Master’s degree in European Studies that has been launched by the Uniwersytet Opolski, the Johannes Gutenberg-Universität Mainz and the Université de Bourgogne. Students from Poland, Germany and France have the opportunity to study together in each of the three countries of the Weimar Triangle. If you wish to know more about the programme and how to apply, please check the Universities’ homepages.

EMA-DOM is an association created and managed entirely by students and for students of Europa Master.

Coming soon!

Our Goals

Helping the Europa Master Students

Creating a Network of Current and Former Students

Because Europa Master students travel from city to city every semester, they rarely have the chance to meet students from other promotions. It is one of EMA-DOM’s goals to create opportunities for Europa Master students from different generations to connect and get to know each other. Moreover, EMA-DOM serves as a platform for Europa Master graduates to stay in touch with their fellow students and up to date on the development of the Europa Master programme. By bringing current and former students together, EMA-DOM wants to create a solidarity network for the students of Europa Master.

Offering Cultural and Academic Activities

The Europa Master experience should not end at the doors of university classrooms! This is why EMA-DOM wants to give current and former students the opportunity to develop and organise their own cultural and educational activities. From discovering the regions of Opole, Rheinland-Pfalz and Bourgogne to going on study trips to the capitals of the Weimar Triangle, from visiting the European institutions to offering training activities on study-related topics - EMA-DOM supports the students in realising their ideas and initiatives.


Promoting the Europa Master Programme

EMA-DOM contributes to spreading the word about the Europa Master degree and to making it known across Europe. Our activities in the field of promoting Europa Master complement, on a social and personal level, the formal promotion done by the universities. We present the Master on social media platforms, organise people to people exchanges and study trips that are open to other students as well..
