The European Masters in Lifelong Learning: Policy and Management

Deadline: 16 January 2012

Open to: Students from Third-Country

Scholarship: Scholarships are worth €48,000 which covers two-year tuition fee of Euro 16,000 and living allowances to study the MALLL programme.

The European Commission offers a limited number of Erasmus Mundus Category A scholarships for third country (non-EU) students. The number of applications by third country students must be limited to a maximum of three Erasmus Mundus Masters Courses. Erasmus Mundus provides a response to the challenges of globalisation faced by European higher education today, in particular the need to adapt education systems to the demands of the knowledge society, to enhance the attractiveness and visibility of European higher education worldwide and to stimulate the process of convergence of degree structures across Europe. The programme’s aim is to promote European higher education, to help improve and enhance the career prospects of students and to promote intercultural understanding through cooperation with third countries, in accordance with EU external policy objectives in order to contribute to the sustainable development of third countries in the field of higher education

Category A scholarships can be awarded to students from all countries other than the 27 EU member states and EEA/EFTA states: Iceland, Lichtenstein, Norway, and the Swiss Confederation.

Application results
The applicants who are not selected for the scholarships will receive notification by email in March 2012.

The scholarship applicants on the main list and reserve list will receive the final results of their applications in early May 2012 after the Consortium has received the final selection approval from the European Commission.

When a main list student withdraws, he/she is replaced by the first eligible candidate on the reserve list. In this particular case, the eligibility criterion concerns the nationality of the reserve list candidate and the rule concerning the presence of a maximum of two nationals from the same country among the scholarship holders for a given category. If there are already two other students with the same nationality on the main list, the consortium will have to take the next eligible candidate respecting its own ranking list in line with the European Commission regulations.

Eligibility
Category A scholarships can be awarded to third-country masters students selected by EMMC consortia who come from a country other than a European country and who are not residents nor have carried out their main activity (studies, training or work) for more than a total of 12 months over the last five years in one of these countries.

Scholarship candidates must have already obtained a first higher education degree or demonstrate a recognised equivalent level of learning according to national legislation and practices (Individuals who have already benefited from an EMMC scholarship are not eligible for a second scholarship in order to follow the same or another EMMC).
