Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degrees (EMJMDs) are international study programmes delivered by a consortium of higher education institutions (HEIs) from different countries and where relevant other partners with specific expertise and interest in the study programme.
EMJMDs aim to:
- Foster excellence, innovation, and internationalisation in HEIs
- Boost the attractiveness of the European Higher Education Area (EHEA) and support the EU’s external action in the field of higher education
- Improve the level of competences and skills of Master graduates and their employability
All participating HEIs established in a Programme Country must be institutions that award the corresponding EMJMD Master degree, either joint or multiple/double. The degrees must be accredited, where applicable, by the competent national authorities in the countries where the HEIs are established.
If national legislation allows, joint degrees are encouraged, as they represent a full integration of the learning and teaching process. An overview of the legal framework in the Erasmus+ Programme Countries relating to the award of joint or multiple/double master degree(s) can be found here.
For further information please refer to the Erasmus+ Programme Guide.
Two e-tutorials that focus on the international dimension of the Erasmus+ are also available. They provide information about EMJMDs and other international actions of the programme, and on how to prepare a competitive proposal.
