International Joint Master Programmes

Erasmus+International Joint Master Programmes are integrated study programmes offered jointly by an international consortium of universities. Some of them have been awarded the Erasmus Mundus label by the European Commission after a selection based on excellence.

Students in these programmes will study at at least two universities in different countries. Certain programmes also offer the possibility for short stays at partner universities outside Europe.

Successful students are awarded a joint, double or multiple degree, depending on the programme and the universities involved.

Annual calls for Erasmus Mundus Joint Masters

Within the framework of the Erasmus+ programme, the European Commission annually launches a call for proposals for Erasmus Mundus Joint Masters. Selected Master programmes obtain funding for the management of the programme and scholarships for four student cohorts. Ghent University Academics with an interest in developing a full proposal or a limited proposal for preparatory activities (so-called ‘Design Measures’) are requested to contact the International Office through for more information and guidance on the relevant procedures.
