Description | Erasmus Mundus Joint Masters scholarships
Erasmus Mundus Joint Masters are high-level and integrated study programmes designed and delivered by an international partnership of higher education institutions (HEI). They involve at least three HEI from three different countries, of which at least two must be EU Member States and third countries associated to the Programme. An EMJM study programme may involve other educational and/or non-educational partners with specific expertise and interest in the area of study.
By supporting these jointly recognised Master degrees, the EU aims at fostering excellence and internationalisation of the participating institutions. There are also select scholarships for students to take part in these prestigious programmes offered to the best-ranked applicants worldwide. The Scholarships are fully funded to cover the cost of a student’s participation in the programme, travel and a living allowance.
The Joint Masters scholarships programme covers:
- the period of your study, research, placement activities, thesis preparation and defense, in line with the requirement of the joint Master.
- And the latter comprising at least 2 study periods in 2 countries, which must be different from your country of residence. Erasmus Mundus Joint Masters offer different study tracks to meet this condition.
