Action 1: Joint Programmes including scholarships

This Action will foster cooperation between higher education institutions and academic staff in Europe and Third Countries with a view to creating poles of excellence and providing highly trained human resources.

Joint programmes of outstanding academic quality are designed and implemented by a consortium of European universities from at least 3 different countries. Consortia may also include universities from other parts of the world. Scholarships / fellowships are open to higher education students and academics from all over the world. Programmes include obligatory study and research periods, in at least two universities, and award recognised double, multiple or joint degrees.

Action 1 provides:

  • Support for high-quality joint programmes – Erasmus Mundus Masters courses (Action 1 A) and Erasmus Mundus Joint Doctorates (Action 1 B) – offered by a consortium of European, and possibly third-country, higher education institutions. Other types of organisations concerned by the content and outcomes of the joint programme can participate in the consortium.
  • Scholarships/fellowships for third-country and European students/doctoral candidates to follow these Erasmus Mundus Masters Courses and Joint Doctorates.
  • Short-term scholarships for third-country and European academics to carry out research or teaching assignments as part of the Erasmus Mundus Masters Courses.
