What is Erasmus Mundus Program?

An Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degree (EMJMD), is a prestigious integrated, international study program, 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.

There are more than 130 Master programs in a variety of fields of study:

  • Agriculture and Veterinary
  • Engineering, Manufacture and Construction
  • Health and Welfare
  • Humanities and Arts Science
  • Mathematics and Computing 
  • Social Sciences, Business and Law

An EMJMD is a study program of 60, 90 or 120 ECTS credits. This means that it lasts from a minimum of 12 months to a maximum of 24 months.


What are the benefits provided?

  • 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), it represents a contribution to your travel and installation costs and includes a monthly subsistence allowance for the entire duration of the study program
  • Successful applicants have a chance to study at least two European countries
  • The successful completion of the study program will lead to the award of either a joint degree (i.e. one single degree certificate issued on behalf of at least two higher education institutions of the EMJMD consortium) or multiple degrees (i.e. at least two-degree certificates issued by two higher education institutions of the consortium).

What are eligibilities?

  • Students at Master’s level worldwide can apply
  • You must have obtained a first higher education degree or demonstrate a recognized equivalent level of learning, according to national legislation and practices, in the degree awarding countries.


How to Apply?

Students should consult the online EMJMD Catalogue and contact the consortium offering the Master Course for more information on courses and application procedures.

A new batch of selected EMJMDs is added to the list each summer. Most consortia will require applications to be submitted between October and January, for courses starting the following academic year.
