Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degrees
With Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degrees (EMJMDs), you can receive a full degree scholarship for a Master-level international study programme.
EMJMDs are distinguished by their academic excellence and the high level of integration of the courses between multiple higher education institutions across countries.
EMJMDs are run by international consortia formed by at least three higher education institutions from different Erasmus+ Programme Countries. In addition, one or more higher education institutions from Partner Countries may form part of the consortium.
Students from all over the world can apply. Before applying for an EMJMD, make sure you respect the following conditions:
- You must have a first higher education degree or demonstrate a recognised equivalent of learning according to the legislation and practices in the countries that will award the degree. More specific information about entry requirements can be found on the website of each EMJMD
- If you have already received an EMJMD scholarship, you are not eligible for an additional scholarship
- Students at Master level can apply to a maximum of three different programmes.
You cannot benefit from another EU-funded scholarship scheme at the same time as receiving support for your EMJMD.
NOTE: Those applicants who are residents or have carried out their main activity (studies, training or work) for more than a total of 12 months over the last five years in a Programme Country apply as Programme Country Applicants. The Programme Countries are: 28 Member States of the European Union (EU) and 5 Non EU Programme Countries (former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway and Turkey). In that case, the scholarship amount considerably reduces as well.
EMJMDs last between 12 and 24 months. As part of an EMJMD, you will study in at least two of the Programme Countries involved in the international consortium.
For your EMJMD, you will receive either a double (or multiple) degree or a joint degree awarded by your higher education consortium, which is officially recognised in the degree-awarding countries.
Your EMJMD is worth 60, 90 or 120 European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System credits depending on the duration of the course.
EMJMD scholarships cover travel expenses, participation costs, fees and living costs for the entire duration of the Master course.
The total amount of your scholarship can vary according to the duration of your course and your nationality. Non-EU students receive larger scholarships as follows:
||Scholarship holder from a Partner Country (including Armenia)
||€2,000 per year (located less than 4,000 km from the EMJMD coordinating university) €3,000 per year (located at or more than 4,000 km from the EMJMD coordinating university)
||Maximum € 1,000 per month
||Up to €9,000 per year
How to apply
For EMJMDs, you must apply directly to through your chosen programme website, where you can find out about entry requirements, the application procedure and submit your application (when the application process is open). The application takes place through a single step: you do not need to apply for a scholarship separately. Hence, when applying to the Master’s programme, tick “Erasmus+ or Erasmus Mundus scholarship” in the online application form.
A new batch of selected EMJMDs is added to the list each year. All programmes will require applications to be submitted between September-October and January-February (always check the programme website), for courses starting the following academic year.
