Joint Master Degree Programmes

An EMJMD is a high-level integrated international study programme of 60, 90 or 120 ECTS credits, delivered by an international consortium of HEIs from different countries and, where relevant, other educational and/or non-educational partners with specific expertise and interest in the study areas/professional domains covered by the joint programme. Their specificity lies in the high degree of jointness/integration and the excellent academic content and methodology they offer. There is no limitation in terms of discipline.

Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degrees (EMJMD) aim to:

  • Foster quality improvements, innovation, excellence and internationalisation in higher education institutions (HEI);
  • Increase the quality and the attractiveness of the European Higher Education Area (EHEA) and supporting the EU's external action in the higher education field, by offering full degree scholarships to the best Master students worldwide;
  • Improve the level of competences and skills of Master graduates, and in particular the relevance of the Joint Masters for the labour market, through an increased involvement of employers.

The list of joint programmes funded under Erasmus+ can be found here.

The EMJMD catalogue will advertise all the joint Master programmes offering Erasmus+ scholarships for the next academic year. The catalogue will allow potential students to select the EMJMDs of their choice and to apply for an Erasmus+ scholarship directly to the consortia concerned.

The EMJMD student scholarships (1000 euro per month) will include student participation costs (including the tuition fees, full insurance coverage and any other mandatory costs related to student participation in the course), a contribution to student travel and installation cost and a subsistence allowance for the entire duration of the EMJMD study programme.
