Student applications

  • Applications for academic year 2017-2018 will open on November 1, 2016.  Deadline is January 31 2017 for all students (EU and non-EU).
  • We advise applicants, however, to submit their application at the latest by January 15th, 2017 in order to avoid last minute problems with incomplete files, overload of the application website etc., and to have some margin to cope with such problems. Application files that are incomplete or partially uploaded on the deadline of 31 January 2017 will not be considered.
  • Please note that the number of applications by third country students must be limited to three Erasmus Mundus Masters Courses maximum. In the eventual case that a student applies to more than three EM Courses he/she will be excluded from the selection for an Erasmus Mundus Scholarship.
  • Bachelor students from one of the partner universities who will study one of the two master years at their home university or EU-students who do not apply for a scholarship can still apply until May 31, 2017 !
  • Application fee
