Erasmus Mundus Join Master Degrees are organised by a consortium. A consortium is open for
- degree-awarding higher education institutions located in Erasmus+ Programme Countries
- higher education institutions located in Partner Countries outside of Europe
- public or private organisations.
The consortium must include higher education institutions from at least three Programme Countries. One of these higher education institutions acts as the project coordinator and compiles the funding application on behalf of the consortium.
A consortium is composed of
- a coordinating higher education institution which signs the grant agreement with the European Commission and coordinates the joint programme in cooperation with the partners of the consortium
- partners which can be higher education institutions or other public or private organisations; these partners participate actively in the preparation, implementation and assessment of the joint programme
- possible associated partners which can be organisations that participate in some form in, for example, disseminating the joint programme results or contributing to the sustainability of the programme.
Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degrees are open to all students worldwide. Interested students and teachers are asked to contact the higher education institutions organising the Master programmes directly.
