Online (ZOOM)

Erasmus Mundus Joint Masters are integrated study programmes designed and delivered through international partnerships. The fully integrated curriculum must include at least two study periods in two countries and is aimed at top students worldwide. Through the Erasmus+ Programme, the EU, on the one hand, funds the implementation and scholarships for such master programmes (Erasmus Mundus Joint Masters), and on the other hand the design of new Erasmus Mundus programmes (Erasmus Mundus Design Measures). Swiss universities are eligible to apply, also as coordinators. 

In this info session, we will present these Erasmus+ actions in more detail and hear concrete experiences of Erasmus Mundus coordinators, partners and participants. 

Target audience:

  • Intermediaries at Swiss Higher Education Institutions (International Relations Officers, research support officers, academic programme coordinators…)
  • Lecturers interested in Erasmus Mundus Actions

The programme will be conducted in English.
