Erasmus Mundus is a cooperation and mobility programme in the field of higher education that aims to enhance the quality of European higher education and to promote dialogue and understanding between people and cultures through cooperation with Third-Countries. In addition, it contributes to the development of human resources and the international cooperation capacity of Higher education institutions in Third Countries by increasing mobility between the European Union and these countries.
While the Erasmus Mundus Programme ended in 2013, Action 1 master and doctoral consortia and Action 2 partnerships will continue until 2017. You can find the ongoing programmes here.
From 2014 onwards, the new program that will provide scholarship opportunities are selected within the new Erasmus+ programme (2014-2020) for international higher education cooperation and mobility. Also, from 2016 1 and 2-year Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degree programmes are available for international students. More information about scholarships for Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degree can be found here.
