Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degree: International Experience XXL!

Studying a Master's degree with people from all around the world, staying in more than two different countries, and receiving high-level international qualifications – does that sound tempting? Then take a peek at the Joint Master Degrees!

What is it?

Joint Master Degrees (JMD) are master degree programmes, jointly delivered by an international consortium of higher education institutions in Europe and outside. The studies, that are designed to last from 12 to 24 months (60, 90 or 120 ECTS credits), must take place in at least two of the Programme countries, and, in many cases, the Partner countries outside Europe involved.


Which fields of study are available?

The online EMJMD Catalogue lists all the Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degrees in the current academic year.  The broad-spectrum of programmes include studies of Social Work, Digital Communication, Robotics, Journalism, Applied Ecology, Psychology and many other fields. Each summer a new batch of selected EMJMDs is added to the list.


Who can apply?

Students at Master's level, staff of the participating organisations, invited scholars (guest lecturers) from Programme and Partner countries.


How much does it cost?

The best student candidates are awarded the EU-funded scholarships, which cover tuition fees, insurance, contributes to travel and installation costs, as well includes a monthly living allowance. Erasmus+ financial support is available after the student has been admitted into the course.


In addition to the scholarship holders, self-funded students can also be enrolled. The price of EMJMD varies depending on the programme.



How to apply?

In case you are interested, you should contact the consortium offering the Erasmus Mundus Master Course of your choice. They will not only provide you with more information on courses and application procedures, but also hold responsibility for the selection, recruitment and monitoring of individual students. You can receive more information by enquiring at the Erasmus+ National Agency or National Erasmus+ Office in your country.


In most cases, the applications are required to be submitted between October and January, for courses starting the following academic year.
