The European Master in Law, Data and Artificial Intelligence (EMILDAI) is an international interdisciplinary programme offered by four Partner Universities.
The European Master in Law, Data and Artificial Intelligence (EMILDAI) is an international interdisciplinary programme offered by four Partner Universities, supported by three Research Associate Partners, and involving more than seventy public and private organisations in the delivery of work placements, seminars, thematic weeks and summer schools. EMILDAI is funded by the Erasmus Mundus Joint Master programme of the European Union.
EMILDAI has been developed as a response to the legal, technical and ethical challenges of digitisation. Businesses and public institutions require experts to legally, ethically and safely process data, in particular in the context of the use of AI systems. EMILDAI aims to educate the leaders who will achieve the goals of the EU Digital Compass. Through a two-year fully integrated study curriculum, including up to three mobility periods, work placements, language courses, summer schools and networking opportunities, EMILDAI will produce legal and technical professionals with a solid expertise in data protection, data governance, cybersecurity, AI law and ethics.
This fully interdisciplinary programme is divided into two study streams, Law and Computing, and offers two areas of specialisation, Data Governance and Cybersecurity. EMILDAI aims to attract excellent students worldwide, thanks to the offer of an internationally recognised joint degree, monthly scholarships, world-class support services, and by paying due attention to fostering equality, diversity and inclusion with regard to all students, in particular those with fewer opportunities. EMILDAI promotes research-led teaching and staff mobility in order to support collaborative research, funding bids, and establish a network of excellence in the field of law, data and AI. The programme offers a vibrant teaching and learning environment, ultimately enhancing the level of internationalisation and competitiveness of the partner universities.
In the academic year 2022/2023, the EMILDAI programme will offer up to 17 Full Scholarships and up to 4 Partial Tuition Fee Waivers. Find out more about scholarships here.
EMILDAI Full Scholarships are funded by the Erasmus Mundus programme of the EU Commission. They cover the programme tuition fees and provide a monthly non-taxable stipendium of €1400 for the full length of the programme (24 months).
If you are not offered a scholarship, we may offer you a self-funded place with a Partial Fee Waiver covering the costs of the Tuition Fees of your second year of study. In this case, you will be required to pay a deposit of €1000 to secure your place, and subsequently pay the normal tuition fees for year 1 of the programme. However, you will be exempted from paying Tuition Fees in the second year of the programme.
