Erasmus Mundus is now part of Erasmus +

The new Erasmus+ programme aims to support actions in the fields of Education, Training, Youth and Sport for the period 2014-2020.

Erasmus+ replaces seven programmes bringing together:

  • The Lifelong Learning Programme (Erasmus, Leonardo da Vinci,  etc. )
  • The Youth in Action programme
  • Five international cooperation programmes (e. g. Erasmus Mundus, Tempus, Alfa)
  • The new sport action

Erasmus + provides grants for a wide range of actions and activities in the fields of education, training, youth and sport. The programme gives opportunities to students, trainees, staff and volunteers to spend a period abroad to increase their skills and employability. It supports organisations to work in transnational partnership and to share innovative practices in the fields of education, training and youth.  Erasmus+ also includes a strong international dimension (i.e. cooperation with Partner Countries) notably in the field of higher education, which opens the programme to institutional cooperation and mobility of young people and staff worldwide. The new Sport action will support grassroots projects and cross-border challenges such as combating match-fixing, doping, violence and racism.

 

You can find more detailed information on the offical Erasmus+ website.

New Erasmus+ scholarships for AMASE available from 2017

The AMASE Master Programme has again been selected for funding within the Erasmus+ Joint Master Degree action (former known as Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degreee).

In total 60 scholarships are given, 20 for each edition with a total funding about 2.923.000 €.

During the application process, 89 projects were eligible and 27 have been selected for funding.

 

Important: 
  • To be considered for an Erasmus+ scholarship, you have to choose two universities different from your last university degree
  • So if you have a German Bachelor for example, you may not study in Germany during the AMASE Master Programme, if you want to get a scholarship
  • Exception: Students with a joint, multiple, double degree can select the award country of their choice (former Atlantis students f.e.)
