Erasmus+ Scholarships now open
Hi there beautiful people!
It’s another Erasmus+ season again. You all know that every year Erasmus+ publishes programs that are going to be funded for the coming academic year. In case you’re wondering what that means, not to worry. Harper Lee says, “no one is born knowing.” That’s from To Kill a Mockingbird.
Erasmus+ used to be called Erasmus Mundus. It’s a prestigious program that you can apply to if you want to have your Master’s degree or PhD in Europe. You can see why we’re talking about it. We’re all about degrees in Europe around here — European Master’s and European doctorates.
As we were saying, the Erasmus+ program is a partnership between the European Union (EU) and some universities in Europe. The universities form a partnership in order to offer Joint degrees in a particular field of study. The joint degrees are either Master’s (JMD) or Doctoral (JDD). Usually the Master’s degrees last for two years (four academic semesters) while the doctorate degree lasts for four years (eight semesters).
What’s the beauty of the Erasmus+ Joint Master’s degree (or Joint Doctorate degree)?
Here’s the deal. How would you like to study in a minimum of two universities and two countries in two years in two European cities for … let me put it well …for being paid to study?
That’s it! If you have a good application, a good bachelor’s degree, a strong motivation letter, then you’re good to go. One more thing, you should also have an interest in studying and learning.
With these you can prepare your application for up to three different Erasmus+ programs. There is usually funding for the Erasmus+ programs from year to year depending on the partners and the agreement with the EU. So what if you’re not sure if the program that interests you is available for the coming academic year?
That’s not a problem. Each penultimate year to the next academic session, the European Commission publishes a list of the programs available for the coming year. You can find that list here. If you want to have it for a closer look, then simply download it.
“An Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degree (EMJMD), is a prestigious, integrated, international study programme, jointly delivered by an international consortium of higher education institutions.
The EMJMD Catalogue displays the masters offering Erasmus Mundus funded scholarships in the academic year 2019-2020.
Most consortia require applications to be submitted between October and January, for courses starting the following academic year.
Students can apply to a maximum of three different programmes. Students and potential scholars/guest lecturers should contact directly the relevant consortium for more information on courses and application procedures.” — EACEA website
