Funding for post-graduate courses

Students can now apply for scholarships for joint master’s degrees and joint doctorates  to take part in a programme starting in September 2015.

Funded by the European Union through Erasmus Mundus, these post-graduate courses aimed at attracting the best students from all over the world, will be delivered by international consortia of higher education institutions.

A total of 116 joint master’s degrees have been selected following the European Commission’s 2014 Call to offer courses in the academic year 2015-2016. A full list of Erasmus Mundus master’s courses is available on the European Commission’s website.

There are also 29 Erasmus Mundus Joint Doctorates inviting applications from doctoral candidates to start a programme during the academic year 2015-2016. Candidates wishing to apply should consult the list and visit a doctoral programme's website for more information on its application requirements and timing.

Before applying, students are strongly advised to read the information for the particular course that interests them, in order to check the application requirements and timing, as these will be set by the institutions.

Potential applicants are reminded that applications need to be made direct to the relevant university consortium, and that the Erasmus+ UK National Agency is not involved in the application or selection process.
