Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degrees

What are EMJMDs?

An Erasmus Mundus Joint Master 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 country if there is a partner-country institution involved.

How to get a scholarship

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); 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.

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.
