Erasmus Mundus Scholarship for International Students is a Master's and PhD Degree Program to study at different Universities in two or three different countries in Europe. It is the most prestigious and competitive, fully funded scholarship awarded by the European Union (EU).
Every year, thousands of applicants from all around the world apply for this scholarship, and a very few are lucky enough to be awarded it after the rigorous evaluation process. For the scholarship holder, this scholarship covers full tuition Fees, Visa fees, Airfare Tickets, Health Insurance, Accommodation, Meals, and a monthly Stipend.
This year I applied for this scholarship, and by the grace of Almighty Allah, I have been awarded this Scholarship for the program named European Politics and Society – Václav Havel Joint Master’s Program. Therefore, my tenure for the two-year master’s program will be at Europe’s three prestigious universities in Spain, the Netherlands, and the Czech Republic.
For those who are interested in applying for the upcoming years, I believe this part will give them a brief idea about some factors that are important to increasing the possibility of getting this Scholarship.
In general, Erasmus programs are, most of the time, not exactly the same discipline or major but multi-disciplinary. Therefore, the aspirants need to go through the official website of the Erasmus Mundus Catalogue to look for the relevant programs, and if you see that your degree, profile, or work experience partially or fully fits into the details of any specific program, then just go for that program and apply.
The requirements for applying for the scholarship vary from program to program. However, these are some crucial factors based on which the selection committee evaluates the overall profile. For example,
Therefore, the evaluation is a holistic process here, and anyone can compensate for any factor with another. However, try to enrich your profile as much as possible because, at the end of the day, you will be competing with other top students with excellent profiles from all over the world.
And in the end, you should believe that every success story has a history of rejection, failure, and depression. Nevertheless, if you have patience, perseverance, and the ability to do strategic hard work, you have a fair chance to get in. Best of luck, and keep me in your prayers! Thank you so much!
