What is an Erasmus Mundus Joint Master’s?
Erasmus Mundus Joint Master’s are high-level and integrated study programs at master level. They are designed and delivered by an international partnership of at least 3 higher education institutions from three different countries, of which at least two must be EU Member States.
The program must take place in several countries participating in the program, with the possibility of mobility in a partner country depending on the composition of the consortium. The successful completion of the joint master’s program must lead to the issue of a double, multiple or joint degree.
By supporting excellent training at master’s level and by offering scholarships to the best students in the world, these programs enhance the attractiveness of Eruopean higher education and the employability of students.
They cover all fields of studies and award scholarships to the best students from all over the world participating in the study program, with a majority of non-EU students.
