European Commission Offers Erasmus Scholarships for Afghan Students

The European Commission made an announcement to encourage Afghan graduates to apply for scholarships to earn their Master's degree in Europe within the Erasmus Mundus programme. Funded by the European Commission, Erasmus Mundus  is a co-operation and mobility programme in the field of higher education.
Erasmus Mundus  provides full scholarships for brilliant students from all over the world to study in Europe. The programme supports European Masters Courses where a consortium of at least three universities in different European countries cooperate and join their expertise to offer top-quality studying and research programmes.
How can students enroll in an Erasmus Mundus  Masters Course and apply for a Scholarship?
European and third-country graduate students having completed their undergraduate studies and successfully obtained a first degree awarded by a higher education institution anywhere in the world can enrol in an Erasmus Mundus Masters Course. Deadlines for applications vary from one university to the other, but generally are concentrated in May.  
Students who wish to follow an Erasmus Mundus  Masters Course must apply directly to the selected Erasmus Mundus  Masters consortium offering the Course in question following the guidelines below:

  • Go to the Erasmus Mundus  website by clicking HERE
  • Find the academic discipline of their interest and click on it. A list of Erasmus Mundus  academic Courses throughout Europe will appear.
  • When clicking on the title of the Course, a full description of the Course including the Course's website appears. Each Course has its own website where each consortium provides information about the specific application requirements, application forms and deadlines.
  • Students and scholars should ensure that they read the application and admission conditions of the Course of their choice carefully. All they have to do then is apply to the respective Course.
  • There are no common application forms or common deadlines to all the Erasmus Mundus  Masters Courses. Students and scholars must apply directly to the selected Erasmus Mundus  Master Consortium offering the Course in question using the application system provided for by the Erasmus Mundus  Masters consortium (as from the academic year 2008-2009 the maximum number of courses students can apply for is 3). Applications submitted to other agencies or institutions are not receivable.
  • While enrolling for an Erasmus Mundus  Masters Course, students/scholars can at the same time apply for a Scholarship. Erasmus Mundus scholarships cover all costs: tuition, board, room, travel to/from the home country and between different campuses in Europe.
