In 2014 the support structure of Erasmus Mundus was transferred into the European Commission’s new programme Erasmus+. This change affects the scholarship scheme for IT4BI-DC starting from student intake in September 2015. The application process and the admission requirements remain unchanged. For more information about the Erasmus+ programme, in particular about eligibility conditions and scholarships, please refer to the Erasmus+ Programme Guide.

The Erasmus+ programme distinguishes students who are nationals or residents of Programme Countries and Partner Countries. Students of Programme Countries are:

  • Students who are nationals or residents of one of the 28 EU Member States: Germany, Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Spain, Finland, France, Greece, Ireland, Slovakia, Slovenia, Italy, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Portugal, UK, Sweden, Bulgaria, Malta, Poland, Czech Republic, Cyprus, Estonia, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Romania, and Croatia.
  • Students who are nationals or residents of one of the following countries: Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway, Turkey, and Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia (FYRoM). Students who have resided or carried out their main activities (studies, work, etc.) for more than 12 months over the past five years (counted backward starting from the end of February following the official deadline for application to the master) in any of the above countries. For applicants applying for student intake in 2016, this is the period from March 1, 2011 to February 28, 2016.
Students of Partner Countries are all other students.

Please note:

  • Doctoral candidates from Partner Countries who have previously received an Erasmus Mundus masters scholarship, can be awarded a fellowship as Programme Country student.
  • Doctoral candidates benefiting for an EMJD fellowship cannot benefit from other Community grants while carrying out their Erasmus Mundus doctoral activities.
  • For Programme Country fellowship holders, the IT4BI-DC universities of the co-tutelle must not be located in the country in which the doctoral candidate has obtained his/her last university degree.
  • You can only apply to maximum three Erasmus Mundus Programmes.
