WHAT IS ERASMUS MUNDUS?

Erasmus Mundus programme is a flagship programme of the European Union that aims to enhance quality in higher education through scholarships and academic co-operation between Europe and the rest of the world. After running as a separate programme from 2004 to 2013, since 2014 Erasmus Mundus has become a part of the EU programme in the feld of education, training, youth and sports called Erasmus+.

Erasmus Mundus provides support for high-quality joint programmes at postgraduate level that contribute to increased visibility and attractiveness of the European higher education. 

It offers full-time scholarships for excellent students – not only from Europe but from all over the world – who have been successfully selected for an Erasmus Mundus joint programme – Erasmus Mundus Master Course (EMMC), Erasmus Mundus Joint Doctorate (EMJD) and since 2014 as part of the Erasmus+ programme  Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degree (EMJMD).

WHAT IS AN ERASMUS MUNDUS JOINT PROGRAMME?

An Erasmus Mundus joint programme is a top-quality Master or Doctorate Programme offered jointly by higher education institutions from at least three different Programme Countries*. EM joint programmes are international, integrated and often interdisciplinary study programmes offered in a variety of disciplines.

An Erasmus Mundus joint programme lasts 1-2 years (Master) or 3-4 years (Doctorate). Students need to study in at least two of the Programme Countries represented in the consortium. Furthermore, it is possible for EM students to study one semester in a Partner Country (any country of the world) if such a university participates in the joint programme. Internships in enterprises and research institutions are possible, too.

WHAT IS A JOINT DEGREE?

By successfully completing an Erasmus Mundus joint programme graduates are awarded a double, multiple or joint degree. A double or multiple degree means that the diploma is issued separately by two or more higher education institutions. A joint degree is a single diploma issued jointly by at least two of the HEIs that are involved in an Erasmus Mundus joint programme.
