Erasmus Mundus Scholarships for European students and doctoral candidates

Erasmus Mundus Scholarships for European  students and doctoral candidates

Erasmus Mundus Scholarships are available for students from all over the world – including Europe – to take part in Erasmus Mundus Joint Masters Courses and Doctoral Programmes.

Erasmus Mundus Joint Masters Courses and Doctoral Programmes

These are joint study or research programmes offered by a consortium of higher education institutions or research organisations from the EU and – in many cases – from outside Europe. These integrated joint programmes include a mandatory study or research period in at least two different European countries. If the consortium includes partners from countries outside the EU, the "mobility tracks" offered may also include a period of study/research at these institutions. All programmes lead to the award of a joint, double or multiple degree recognised in the European countries represented in the consortium.

There are currently 123 Erasmus Mundus Masters Courses (ranging from 60 to 120 ECTS) and 24 Erasmus Mundus Joint Doctorate Programmes (lasting three or four years), covering a wide range of academic disciplines (see "How to apply" section below) and offering Erasmus Mundus scholarships/fellowships for studies and research activities starting in the academic year 2011/2012.

While during the first phase of Erasmus Mundus (2004-2008), scholarships were only available for non-European students, since the academic year 2010/2011, students and doctoral candidates from the EU are also eligible for Erasmus Mundus scholarships and fellowships.

How to apply

European students or doctoral candidates interested in an Erasmus Mundus scholarship/fellowship should consult the list of Erasmus Mundus Masters and Doctorates on the Erasmus Mundus website:

http://eacea.ec.europa.eu/erasmus_mundus/results_compendia/selected_projects_en.php

This list provides a general description of each joint programme, as well as a link to the relevant consortium's website. Here, students and doctoral candidates can find more information about the joint programme's objectives and expected learning/research outcomes, the mobility tracks offered, the entry requirements and scholarship/fellowship application procedure and deadlines.

Applications are made direct to the consortium.

Candidates wishing to enrol in an Erasmus Mundus Joint Programme at masters or doctoral level in the academic year 2011/2012, will have to apply directly to the consortium or consortia of their choice during the period November 2010 – January 2011. Applicants should note that each consortium is responsible for designing and implementing its own selection procedure, criteria and timetable. As a result, the scholarship/fellowship application deadline will vary from one consortium to another.

Erasmus Mundus Joint Programme consortia will have to submit their list of candidates proposed for an Erasmus Mundus scholarship/fellowship to the European Commission by 28 February 2011 and the applicants will be informed of the outcome of their application by April 2011.
