Join the Erasmus Mundus Programme!

Apply for an excellent joint master degree programme and receive a European scholarship

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.

Paula Louw’s story about Szentendre

„As soon as you get off the train, leave the station and start wandering through the cobblestoned streets you can feel Szentendre’s laid-back atmosphere. The streets in the town are filled with brightly coloured buildings, historic churches, sculptures, cafés and interesting shops. One of the most iconic and unique sights of the town center are the large, colourful mismatched lamp shades strewn above the streets.”

One of our Campus Buddy volunteers, Paula Louw from South-Africa has written a wonderful review about this mediterranean-like city, Szentendre, which has many things to offer for travallers. This town has its own unique atmosphere as several folks lived here throughout history.
