With Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degrees (EMJMDs), successful applicants can receive a full degree scholarship for a Master-level international study programme and graduate their Master’s with joint or multiple degrees.
EMJMDs are distinguished by their academic excellence and the high level of integration of the courses between multiple higher education institutions across countries. The programmes are run by international consortia formed by at least three higher education institutions from 27 EU Member states or 6 third countries associated with Erasmus+ Programme (Republic of North Macedonia, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway, Serbia and Turkey). In addition, one or more higher education institutions from the countries not associated with the Programme can be part of the consortium.
Students from all over the world are eligible to apply to EMJMDs. There is no age limit. However, 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
Applicants 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 12months over the last five years in a any of the 27 EU Member States and 6 countries associated with the Programme (Republic of North Macedonia, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway, Serbia and Turkey) will receive a reduced scholarship.
