Erasmus Mundus – Action 1

The Erasmus Mundus programme is a co-operation and mobility programme in the field of higher education which promotes the European Union as a centre of excellence in learning around the world. It supports European top-quality Masters Courses and enhances the visibility and attractiveness of European higher education in third countries. It also provides EU-funded scholarships for third country nationals participating in these Masters Courses, as well as scholarships for EU-nationals studying at Partner universities throughout the world.

The Erasmus Mundus programme comprises four concrete Actions:

ACTION 1 – Erasmus Mundus Masters Courses: They constitute the central component around which the Erasmus Mundus programme is built. The Erasmus Mundus Masters Courses are high-quality integrated study programmes at masters level offered by a consortium involving a minimum of three universities in at least three different European countries. Students have to study in at least two of the three universities and obtain a recognised double or joint degree upon graduation;

ACTION 2 – Erasmus Mundus scholarships: The scholarship scheme addresses highly qualified graduate students and scholars from third-countries who have been admitted to attend an Erasmus Mundus Masters Course;

ACTION 3 – Partnerships: Erasmus Mundus Masters Courses have the possibility of establishing Partnerships with third-country higher education institutions. These Partnerships allow for outgoing mobility of graduate EU students and scholars involved in the Erasmus Mundus Masters Courses in order to study or work at a third-country partner university;

ACTION 4 – Enhancing attractiveness: Erasmus Mundus supports projects aimed at enhancing the attractiveness of European higher education around the world. It supports activities that will improve the profile, the visibility and the accessibility of European higher education.
