An Erasmus Mundus Joint Master’s Degree (EMJMD), is a prestigious, integrated, international study programme, jointly delivered by an international consortium of higher education institutions.
EMJMDs award EU-funded scholarships to the best student candidates applying under annual selection rounds.
Study must take place in at least two of the Programme countries. Part of the studies can also take place in a Partner countries if there is a partner-country institution involved.
An EMJMD is a study programme of 60, 90 or 120 ECTS credits. This means that it lasts from a minimum of 12 months, to a maximum of 24 months.
To receive Erasmus+ financial support, you must first be admitted onto the course by the organising consortium and then be selected for an EMJMD scholarship.
The EMJMD scholarship covers your participation costs (including the tuition fees, library and laboratory costs, full insurance coverage and any other mandatory costs related to your participation in the Master’s); it represents a contribution to your travel and installation costs and includes a monthly subsistence allowance for the entire duration of the study programme.
The total amount of the scholarship varies according to the duration of your course and your nationality (non-EU students receive larger scholarships).
A minimum of 75% of the scholarships are awarded to candidates from Partner countries.
