Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degrees aim to foster excellence, innovation, and internationalisation in HEIs; to boost the attractiveness of the European Higher Education Area (EHEA) and support the EU’s external action in the field of higher education; and to improve the level of competences and skills of Master graduates and their employability. The Education, Audiovisual and Culture Executive Agency (EACEA) manages EU funding for education, culture, audiovisual, sport, citizenship and volunteering; among them the action of Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degrees.
MARIHE is a four-semester (two-year) Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degree programme (EMJMD). Its mobility scheme includes a mandatory mobility period to a third country full partner, as all MARIHE students spend a lecture period (in the 3rd semester) either at consortium partner Beijing Normal University in China or Thapar Institute of Engineering and Technology in India. Therefore, the scholarship scheme for MARIHE is the following:
1) Contribution to participation costs
- For a scholarship holder from Erasmus+ PARTNER countries (“category A”): 6 000 € per year
- For a scholarship holder from Erasmus+ PROGRAMME countries (“category B”): 4 500 € per year. In addition to that, MARIHE consortium will apply a fee waiver for the remaining participation costs.
This means that, for both types of scholarship holders, the Erasmus Mundus scholarship covers all participation costs in MARIHE (12 000 € for the whole programme/two years).
