Erasmus Mundus joint master’s degrees to be continued until 2026

By Zuzanna Filipiuk

Despite the UK’s departure from the EU, Glasgow will still take part in the programmes for the duration of the funding period and also offer a new programme.

The University of Glasgow has stated that it will continue to coordinate Erasmus Mundus Joint Master’s Degrees (EMJMD) until 2026.

A new programme has also been added to the selection of other EMJMDs coordinated by the University, and funding has been renewed for one of the most long-standing programmes, namely the Central and East European, Russian, and Eurasian Studies courses.

Despite some uncertainties caused by the post-Brexit situation, a conclusion has been reached that the UK would continue to coordinate and take part in EMJMDs for the duration of the funding period.

The latest addition to the EMJMDs coordinated by the University of Glasgow, International Law of Global Security, Peace, and Development, will provide its students with a sound understanding of the political context of international law, while also allowing them to spend some of their studies in such countries as Spain, Canada, Germany, Estonia, Netherlands, or Belgium. Following this latest addition to the program, the University of Glasgow will now coordinate nine EMJMDs.

The EMJMD is an international study program coordinated by an international consortium of higher education institutions. Any of the EMJMDs have to take place at two or more of the partner institutions and should last between 12 and 24 months.

EMJMD includes a full scholarship that shall cover tuition fees, as well as living and travel expenses. It also provides the students with the opportunity to attend one of the optional summer schools, some of which are outside Europe.

Upon the successful completion of the program, students will receive a joint degree or multiple degree, depending on the structure of the individual EMJMD.

Applications for the programme open around mid-September and close in early January.
