  • EMJMD student scholarships cover the entire duration of the Master course and are awarded exclusively for full-time enrolment in the course. Scholarship candidates must have already obtained a first higher education degree or demonstrate a recognised equivalent level of learning according to national rules and legislation in place. Candidates who will only obtain their first higher education degree at the end of the academic year preceding the EMJMD intake can nevertheless apply for a scholarship and can be selected by the consortium, under the condition that the student obtains the required degree prior to the beginning of the Master course.
  • Students who are former Action 1 Erasmus Mundus Master/Doctoral Course scholarship holders are not eligible for an additional EMJMD scholarship. Successful applicants cannot benefit from another EU grant while pursuing the EMJMD scholarship studies.
  • EMJMD scholarship holders must spend at least two complete mobility periods in at least two of the consortium’s full HEI partnerswhich are located in different Programme Countries. Each of these mandatory mobility periods must include a volume of study/research or equivalent corresponding to at least 30 ECTS.
  • The mandatory mobility periods cannot be replaced by virtual mobility neither can they take place in institutions outside the consortium
  • Additional study/research/thesis preparation/placement periods can take place in other participating organisations in the consortium (partner and associated partner) under the condition that the activities concerned are implemented under the direct supervision of the consortium partner.
  • Contribution to subsistence costs will not be given to scholarship holders from a Partner Country for periods exceeding three months of the EMJMD spent in any Partner Country.
  • Contribution to subsistence costs will not be given to scholarship holders for periods of the EMJMD spent in their country of residence.

Scholarships are dependent on both nationality and residency.

Students with a double nationality (of a Partner and of a Programme Country) must specify the nationality under which they submit their scholarship application.

When determining the contribution to participation costs, the consortium defines the student category – either Programme Country or Partner Country. The definition of the student category depends on his/her nationality and on whether the student resided in a Programme Country for more than 12 months over the last five years before applying (applicable only to students with Partner Country nationality). Therefore:

  • Students whose nationality is one of the Erasmus+ Programme Countries count as Programme Country students.
  • Students whose nationality is one of the Erasmus+ Partner Countries and who are not residents nor have carried out their main activity (studies, training or work) for more than a total of 12 months over the last five years in a Programme Country are considered as Partner Country students. The five year reference period for this 12 month rule is calculated backwards from the submission deadline.
  • Students whose nationality is one of the Erasmus+ Partner Countries who do not fulfil the Partner Country criteria defined above (12 month rule) count as Programme Country students.  
  • Example: a Serbian student who lived in Germany for 13 months, 3 years before the deadline date should apply as a Programme Country student; a Mexican student who has been living in Spain for 11 months as of the deadline date (and never before in the 5 year period) should apply as a Partner Country student. 

The contribution to travel and installation costs takes into account only the residence (as of the deadline date) of the scholarship holder regardless of the category under which the student has applied.

 If you’re offered a scholarship, you will be required to provide proof of residency:

  • a residence certificate issued in accordance with the candidate’s municipality normal registration rules
  • a certificate from the candidate’s place of work, study or training issued by the employer or institution in question.

Both documents must have been issued within 12 months before the scholarship submission deadline.

Please note that the data you provide in your application will be shared with the ILGSPD consortium partners as part of the Erasmus Mundus scholarship review process

Personal data will be sent to the Educational, Audiovisual and Culture Executive Agency (EACEA) and may be used for the purposes of evaluating the programme, efficiently managing the project, and producing statistics. Data could be made available to the EACEA, the European Commission, the European External Action Service staff, as well as to other stakeholders of the Erasmus+ programme, such as Erasmus+ National Agencies, National Erasmus+ Offices and the Erasmus Mundus Student and Alumni Association.

Tuition fees for 2022-23

EU (including the UK)

  • Full-time fee: £8100 per annum or €9320 per annum


  • Full-time fee: £15967 per annum or €18372 per annum

The fees charged to students reflect the fee and funding regime established by the European Commission in respect of Erasmus Mundus Joint Masters Degree programmes.  This means that, for this programme, fees paid by EU students are the same as those paid by UK students. Nationals of non-EU programme countries as defined by the EACEA will also be charged Home and EU fees (Iceland, Liechtenstein, North Macedonia, Norway, Serbia and Turkey)

The fees listed here cover tuition only. The University of Glasgow can only collect fees in Pound Sterling at the published GBP values. The above conversions to EUR have been calculated using the May 2021 rate of the European Commission’s approved currency convertor and therefore subject to exchange rates at the time of payment.  As the programme contains various mobility periods, students (funded and self-funded) will need to cover their own airfares between each chosen partner.
