Erasmus Mundus Studies
Erasmus Mundus Action I
Erasmus Mundus Action I is an EU programme supporting university cooperation at the Master's and doctoral levels. It aims to provide top-quality European education to attract the best students from all over the world. The Erasmus Mundus label is associated with the highest academic quality and standard of excellence. SLU is a partner in four Erasmus Mundus Action I Master's programmes.
The programmes are offered by a group of partner universities (consortium) and include studies in at least two countries. Scholarships covering tuition fees and living costs are available for both European and non-European students. Students from all over the world can apply for the scholarships. It is also possible to participate in the programmes on a self funding basis.
As a student one applies directly to the consortium. All programmes have different prerequisites and application deadlines. Application forms are found on the specific programme webpages.
SLU is also a partner in two Erasmus Mundus Action I Joint-Doctoral programmes. To read more about these programmes, please click on the following links:
