The Erasmus Mundus Joint Master's Degree (EMJMD) is a prestigious, integrated, international study program offered in partnership with an international consortium of higher education institutions.
EMJMD is EU funded and awards scholarships to the best candidates among students applying for annual selection rounds. The study must be done in at least two of the program countries. Some of the work can also take place there, if there is an institution in a relevant partner country.
Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Program is a study program of 60, 90 or 120 ECTS credits. This means a minimum of 12 months and a maximum of 24 months.
All Masters level students from all over the world can apply for the Erasmus Mundus program.
First of all, you must have a bachelor’s degree, or you must have attained an equivalent education level in the degree awarding countries according to national legislation and practices.
If you have already received an Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degree or an Erasmus Mundus Master Course / Joint Doctoral scholarship, you will not be able to receive an additional EMJMD scholarship. While receiving an EMJMD scholarship, you cannot take advantage of another EU funded scholarship program.
Candidates who successfully complete the Master's program are awarded a joint degree (i.e. a single degree certificate issued on behalf of at least two higher education institutions of the EMJMD consortium) or more than one degree, for example a diploma prepared by two higher education institutions that are partners of the consortium.
To find out whether an Erasmus Mundus Joint Master program can be recognized in a particular country, you can find out by contacting the relevant authorities and giving the official name of the Master's degree.
In order for a student to receive financial support from the Erasmus + program, students must first be accepted by the consortium organization and then be selected for the Erasmus Mundus Master (EMJMD) scholarship.
So what does Erasmus Mundus Master scholarship cover? The EMJMD scholarship covers your participation fees (tuition fees, library and laboratory expenses, insurance fee and other mandatory costs related to your participation in the Master's program). It also contributes to your travel and accommodation costs and covers your monthly living expenses for the entire Master program.
The total amount of the scholarship depends on the duration of your course and your nationality (non-EU students receive more scholarships).
At least 75% of the scholarships are given to candidates from partner countries.
Students who want to benefit from the scholarship should first look at the onlineErasmus Mundus Master catalog. For more information on joint programs and application procedures, they should contact the consortium offering the Master Course, as each consortium has different application requirements.
New groups selected for the Erasmus Mundus Scholarship are added to the list every summer. Most consortia receive applications from October to January for courses starting in the next academic year.
