The Erasmus Mundus Program

The Erasmus Mundus Program is a world version Erasmus Program, and aims at stimulating student exchange incorporating countries outside the EU. It began in 2004, and presently focuses on Master's courses. Several universities including some outside the EU form a consortium around one specialist field, and create an Erasmus Mundus Master Program. The Master's course itself straddles national borders, and invites applications from inside and outside the EU. Following the selection process, students are offered a generous scholarship. They study at several universities within the consortium, and can take simultaneous degrees from these universities. The first three years saw over two thousand students from outside the EU accepted.
