"Erasmus+"

Erasmus+ will provide opportunities for over 4 million Europeans to study, train, gain work experience and volunteer abroad.

Erasmus+ will support transnational partnerships among Education, Training, and Youth institutions and organisations to foster cooperation and bridge the worlds of Education and work in order to tackle the skills gaps we are facing in Europe.

It will also support national efforts to modernise Education, Training, and Youth systems. In the field of Sport, there will be support for grassroots projects and cross-border challenges such as combating match-fixing, doping, violence and racism.

Erasmus+ brings together seven existing EU programmes in the fields of Education, Training, and Youth; it will for the first time provide support for Sport. As an integrated programme, Erasmus+ offers more opportunities for cooperation across the EducationTraining, Youth, and Sport sectors and is easier to access than its predecessors, with simplified funding rules.

"Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degree"

What are joint Erasmus Mundus Master's degrees?

A joint Erasmus Mundus Master's degree (EMJMD = Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degree) is an integrated international program for Master's degree courses, which can comprise 60, 90 or 120 credit points and which is carried out by an international consortium of higher education institutions from different countries and possibly other partners inside and outside of the educational sector, who have special knowledge in the fields of study / vocational sectors of joint study programs and have a special interest in  the programs.

The special feature of EMJMD is that it consists of strong common / integrated character.

With the joint Erasmus Mundus Master's degrees following objectives are sought by the European Union:

  •  Promoting excellence, quality improvements, innovation excellence and internationalization in higher education institutions
  •  Increasing the quality and attractiveness of the European Higher Education Area (EHEA)
  •  Supporting the EU's external action in the field of higher education by providing full scholarships for the best Master's students worldwide
  •  Improving the skills and qualifications of graduates of master's programs (in particular, increasing the labor market relevance of the joint masters programs) through increased involvement of employers.


Erasmus Mundus Joint Master's degrees should contributre to the achievement of the objectives of the strategy "Europe 2020" and the Strategic Framework in the field of education and training (ET2020), including the respective specified benchmark.

Students must be able to acquire Master's degrees at all participating higher education institutions of a program country, and the corresponding Master certificates (for the entire study program of the joint Erasmus Mundus Master's Degree) must be fully recognized by the competent national authorities of the countries where these higher education institutions are located.

Upon successful completion of the joint study program, either a joint degree (i.e. a diploma issued by at least two higher education institutions from different Programme Countries and fully recognized in these countries) or a multiple degree (i.e. at least two diplomas of two higher education institutions from different Programme Countries, which are fully recognized in these countries ) must be issued.

Therefore, EMJMD applications for joint masters courses must include already in the application fully elaborated joint study programs, so that after the approval of the finanicng, projects can be carried out without delay and can be made known worldwide.

Eligible activities:

  • Implement a joint Erasmus Mundus Masters program with 60, 90 or 120 creditsn, which is run by an international consortium of higher education institutions
  • Organize the participation of scientists (guest lecturers), who are invited for teaching, training and / or research purposes.
