Admission & Fees

Minimum eligibility criteria

Candidates can apply for an Erasmus Mundus scholarship to the Erasmus Mundus Action 1 joint programme (EMMC) of their choice but:

  • The number of applications must be limited to maximum 3 different joint programmes (EMMC and EMJD together),
  • Individuals who have already benefited from an EMMC scholarship are not eligible for a second scholarship in order to follow the same or another EMMC.
  • Students benefiting from an EMMC scholarship cannot benefit from another Community grant while pursuing their Erasmus Mundus masters studies.
  • EMMC student’s scholarships are awarded exclusively for a full-time enrolment in one of the course editions.

Candidates can also apply under a self-funding scheme, but:

  • They understand that they can expect no financial assistance from the Erasmus Mundus Programme and that Neurasmus participation costs do not cover any living or travel expense. In case of sponsorship or application to external scholarship Programmes, self-funded candidates will be required to provide the Board of Education with a proof of Sponsorship sustainability or a proof of acceptation to any other scholarship before the Neurasmus Programme starts.
  • A non-scholarship holder may thus be offered a position in the Neurasmus Programme, on the conditions that: (1) He/she fulfil the Neurasmus min. requirements, (2) His/her ranking among the candidates allows him/her to obtain a place in one Neurasmus partner university, (3) He/she has adequate financial support.

Candidates who applied for an Erasmus Mundus scholarship, but obtained a position on the Reserve List, are authorized to apply under a self-funding scheme. The decision to apply as self-funded student will not affect their position on the reserve list, in the condition that if the Neurasmus Programme finally offers them an Erasmus Mundus scholarship, they need to cancel any other EU Community scholarship applications.
