Erasmus Mundus Joint Degree courses

You can apply for a scholarship to follow one of the existing high-level Erasmus Mundus programmes at masters or doctoral level, offered by a consortium of European and non-European higher education institutions.

You will study in at least two of the participating institutions and be awarded a joint or double/multiple degree at the end of your studies. You can find listings of those consortia including Finnish higher education institutions below.

Generous EU-funded scholarships cover the participation costs, travel to Europe, a living allowance and insurance.

You apply directly to the consortium, which carries out a competitive selection procedure for scholarship places, open to candidates from around the world. Application deadlines vary from one Erasmus Mundus programme to another - generally, however the applications for admission with Erasmus Mundus scholarships fall between the period November-January.

Clicking a link may therefore take you to a non-Finnish university's site. That is the coordinating institution in that case, and you need to apply to the programme in question through that particular university.
