Studying in Europe. Erasmus Mundus Scholarship Program
Studying in Europe. Erasmus Mundus Scholarship Program




About the program

Erasmus Mundus is a scholarship program aimed at providing academic mobility to students. This means that in addition to obtaining funding, you will get the opportunity to undergo training in several countries around the world. The program presents 49 countries and more than 4 thousand universities. The educational institutions that are members of the consortium offer coordinated training programs in the following areas: 

  • Химия
  • Physics
  • Mathematics
  • Economy
  • Ecology and Geology
  • Information Technology and Engineering
  • Biology
  • Humanities and Social Sciences


Mobility. Program training takes place in several countries. This means that you will start studying, for example, in Germany, and spend the next semester in Austria. As a rule, this is 2-3 of the country / university for the entire period of study. 

Without obligations. Another distinguishing feature of Erasmus Mundus is that at the end of the program you are not assigned any obligations. For comparison, other popular Fulbright and Chevening scholarship programs require you to return to your home country after graduation for at least 2 of the year.


Erasmus Mundus programs provide scholarships and grants funded by the EU for:

  • Bachelors, Professionals, and Masters wishing to attend Erasmus Mundus Master's Courses
  • Researchers wishing to teach or conduct research in the framework of the Erasmus Mundus Masters
  • Masters and graduate students wishing to participate in the joint doctoral program Erasmus Mundus

Approximately € 21 is allocated per student per year, which means:

  • A scholarship of approximately 1600 € x 10 study months;
  • A fixed amount of € 5 thousand for travel expenses, tuition fees, etc.
  • If a student takes a two-year course of study, approximately 42 thousand € is allocated.

These amounts are paid to the student by a consortium of higher education institutions.

Feed steps

To participate in the program, you will need to go through several stages. 

I. Choose suitable training programs in the catalog. You can choose 3 programs to increase your chances of admission, since only 2x candidates from one country are selected for each Erasmus program.  

II. Examine the requirements of each selected program. They may differ both in terms of submission and in the list of documents. The standard package of necessary documents includes:

  • Summary on demand for a specific program.
  • A copy of the document on higher education translated into English and notarized or apostilled.
  • Transcript - a list of all completed training courses, translated into English and certified by a university or notary.
    * If you are a last year student, instead of a diploma, you can send a certificate from the university that you will receive a diploma no later than a certain date.
  • Certificate of passing the international language test (DALF, DELE, TOEFL, etc., depending on the language of teaching the program).
  • 2-3 recommendations from teachers of your university or from employers.
  • Motivation letter (essay).
  • Copy of passport.
  • * GRE or GMAT certification may be required depending on the program.
  • * Research plan may be required.

III. Fill out an application Application form and prepare a package of introductory documents. Carefully fill out the application, scan the documents and send them to the specified address before the deadline. Deadlines for most programs end in January-February. After passing the preliminary selection, you will also be required to write an additional essay and pass an interview in the language of the educational program.
