The Erasmus Mundus Catalogue is updated yearly and lists the Master’s programmes that are currently supported by the European Union and that may offer Erasmus Mundus scholarships.
Most consortia require applications to be submitted between October and January for courses starting the following academic year. Students should contact the relevant consortium directly for information on courses, application procedures and scholarships availability.
Students at master’s level from all over the world can apply. You must have a bachelor’s degree (first degree) or be in your last year of bachelor studies and graduate before the master’s programme starts.
You may also apply if you demonstrate a bachelor’s equivalent level of learning. This must be officially recognised, according to national legislation and practices, in the degree awarding country.
About Erasmus Mundus Joint Masters scholarships
Erasmus Mundus Joint Masters are high-level and integrated study programmes, at master level. They are 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 (previously called Programme Countries).
By supporting these jointly recognised Master degrees, the EU aims at fostering excellence and internationalisation of the participating institutions. There are also scholarships for students to take part in these prestigious programmes; the masters themselves offer them to the best-ranked applicants worldwide.
Scholarships cover the cost of a student’s participation in the programme, travel and a living allowance.
Activities and outcomes
The programme covers the period of your study, research, placement activities, thesis preparation and defence, in line with the requirement of the joint Master. The latter comprises 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.
Duration of the masters: 1 to 2 academic years (60, 90 or 120 ECTS credits)
Type of degree awarded: either a joint degree (i.e. one single degree certificate issued on behalf of at least two higher education institutions) or multiple degrees (i.e. at least two degree certificates issued by two higher education institutions of the consortium)
