The Erasmus Mundus Scholarship

Erasmus Mundus is the flagship scholarship programme of the European Union. It provides funding opportunities for students and academics worldwide to study or undertake research in Europe.

The Erasmus Mundus programme offers special courses at a selected group of universities at both Master's and Doctorate levels. This consortium (or cluster) of universities comprises institutions from three or more different EU Member States. The scholarships are only available for the specific courses offered from these universities. Students must study in 2 or more of the universities and, upon completion, they will receive a joint degree, a double degree or even multiple degrees.

Funds are also available for scholars to carry out teaching or research assignments at the institutions participating in the Erasmus Mundus Master's Courses.

Erasmus Mundus courses and degrees

Courses at the Master's level are open to graduate students who already have a university degree.

Please contact us for the detailed list of eligible courses at the Master's level for funding.

Please contact us for the detailed list of eligible courses at the Doctorate level for funding .

Financial assistance

Student scholarships are valued at approximately €24,000 per year. The scholarship covers tuition fees, travel and living expenses in Europe for the full duration of the course. Scholar scholarships range from €2,400 for a two-week stay, to €14,800 for a three month working assignment and cover travel and living expenses.

Conditions of Eligibility

You can apply for an Erasmus Mundus scholarship if:

  • you are not a resident of any of the EU Member States,
  • you have not carried out your main activities (studies, work, etc.) for more than a total of 12 months over the last five years in any of the EU Member States, and,
  • you fulfill the admissions criteria as specified for each course.

How to apply?

Unfortunately, there is no common or standard application form and deadlines for Erasmus Mundus Master's Courses or Joint Doctorates. Students must apply directly to the group of university offering the Erasmus Mundus Master's Course or Joint Doctorate of their choice by following the application procedures specific to that consortium (students may only apply up to a maximum of three disciplines). When enrolling in an Erasmus Mundus Master's Course or Joint Doctorate, students are encouraged to apply for the Erasmus Mundus scholarship at the same time.

Apart from Ersamus Mundus Schalrships, European Universities offers full or partial tuition fee waiver scholarships for master degree level study programs. Most scholarships are granted in the framework of university or institutional co-operations. Students may then contact the office of International Relations of their respective universities to get more information about the scholarships available. If you are interested in studying in Iceland and if you are looking for financial support/Schalorship/full or partial tuition fee waiver, we strongly recommend that you reach our counselor who would assist you to find all the information on available scholarships (section Study & Research in Europe). Our aim is to make it easier for those interested in studying in Europe as well as those providing assistance and advice in ESC’s office to find details of existing grant programmes and to guarantee that the information about these programmes is always up to date.

Selection process

  • The Erasmus Mundus Consortium selects the applicant students and scholars on the basis of their study and academic merits, motivation, recommendations, language skills, etc.
  • The Consortium proposes a list of successful applicants for final approval by the EC Headquarters in Brussels.
  • The EC confirms this selection and assigns the grants.
  • The Consortium will communicate to applicants if they have been accepted for the course and if they have been awarded a scholarship (Notification of acceptance is normally in May)
