Selection procedure for an Erasmus Mundus Scholarship (not applicable for the 2024-2026 intake)

The selection committee ranks separately the applicants of each category: Partner country students (non-European) and Programme country students (European) in a main list and a reserve list. Students in the main list are eligible for an Erasmus Mundus Scholarship or the Consortium scholarships. If students withdraw from the main list, the highest ranked students from the reserve list are upgraded to the main list and are notified immediately.

General rules

Each application is reviewed at least by two different institutions from the Consortium to ensure a fair evaluation. Our rankings both take into account the academic performance* of the student, the relevance of the field of their B.Sc for the JEMARO curriculum, the quality of the home institution, English proficiency, the student's motivation, recommendation letters and CV. 

Applicants whose application has been rejected have the right of appeal. Appeals should be directed to the following address: More information on how to appeal will be given in the non-selected notification email.

* The academic performance score takes into account the quality of the institution that delivered the previous university degree (using webometrics rankings: and the student's individual academic performance (class rank, GPA, etc.). There is a threshold score of 25/45 on this criterion, any application scoring below that threshold will automatically be discarded.
