Students interested in pursuing a full master’s degree abroad may apply for an Erasmus Mundus Joint Masters (EMJM) programme. Erasmus Mundus Joint Masters are high-level integrated study programmes at the master level. The programmes carry 60, 90, and 120 ECTS (European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System) credits; however, most of the programmes last two years. The EMJMDs are jointly delivered by a consortium of a minimum of three higher education institutions from different Programme countries. All the programmes are listed in the EMJM Catalogue, which is updated annually.
Students must study at least two study periods in two countries different from their country of residence. After the successful completion of an EMJM programme, they will receive either a joint degree or multiple degrees.
WHO CAN TAKE PART?
Only students who have obtained a first level higher education degree are eligible to apply. Some EMJM consortium can decide to accept applications from students in the last year of their undergraduate studies.
Erasmus Mundus Joint Masters provide specific EU-funded scholarships to excellent students worldwide to cover travel costs, participation costs and living costs during the entire duration of the Master course.
HOW TO APPLY?
Students interested in applying for an Erasmus Mundus Masters programme should consult the EMJM catalogue and find a suitable programme first. Each programme has a website, which contains all the information about the programme, consortium, academic requirements, and application procedure. Students can apply for up to three Erasmus Mundus Joint Masters programmes in one application round. Applications are submitted through the website of each programme, usually between October and January for courses starting the following academic year. Students are advised to contact the relevant consortium directly for more information.
More information about the EMJM programmes can be found on the website of the European Commission.
