Erasmus+ Joint Master’s Programmes are high quality, specialised degrees in which you study different parts of the programme at the various participating universities. You will be part of an international student group with access to a unique, tailor-made education in several countries.

What does Erasmus Mundus Joint Masters entail?

These joint Master’s programmes are offered by international consortiums, which are groups of universities from different countries. For students, this means that they will have to spend at least two study periods abroad, one of which needs to take place in a European country. The programmes cover 60, 90 or 120 credits.  If you complete a joint Master’s programme you are awarded with double or joint degree.

What are the admissions requirements?

The admissions requirements (grades, etc.) are set by the consortium that offers the programme. However, in general you need to have

  • completed a Bachelor’s degree
  • good English skills (you often need to demonstrate this through a test)
  • motivated your application in a personal letter

How do I apply?

The joint Master’s programmes have their own application process. You apply directly to the consortium responsible for the programme. As Erasmus Mundus Joint Masters are programmes of excellence the admissions requirements are generally tough.

Students in Sweden can apply to all joint Master’s programmes within Erasmus Mundus Joint Masters, provided they have the necessary eligibility. There is no need for a Swedish university to be part of the partnership.

A list of Erasmus Mundus Joint Masters programmes will shortly be available on the European Commission’s website.

Previously granted Erasmus Mundus Joint Masters programmes, which are still open for submission, can be found on the European Commission’s website.

Visit the website of the programme you are interested in and read more about its content, admission requirements and application procedure. Note that these programmes are officially called “Erasmus Mundus Joint Masters Degrees”, abbreviated "EMJMD".

Tuition fees and grants

Unlike other exchange programmes, the Erasmus Mundus Joint Master’s programmes charge tuition fees. However, it is possible to apply for scholarships that cover travel and living costs, as well as tuition fees. Scholarships are applied for at the same time you apply to the programme. There are few scholarships available, which means that not everyone admitted to a programme will be awarded one.

More information about tuition fees and how to apply for a scholarship is available on that programme’s website.
