EMJMD – Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degree

Programme Description and Aims

The Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degree (EMJMD) continues the formally known “Erasmus Mundus” programmes (2009-2013).

An Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degree is a study programme of 60, 90 or 120 ECTS credits, delivered by an international consortium of higher education institutions and and, where relevant, other educational and/or non-educational partners.

The conclusion of the programme will lead to the award of:

  • a joint degree (one single diploma issued by at least two higher education institutions)
  • or multiple degrees (at least two diplomas issued by two higher education institutions)

The Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degree is a high-level programme, due to its distinctive academic content, the methodology it offers and its high integration/jointness (academic curriculum, implementation procedures, selection and admission criteria, quality assurance mechanisms).
