How To Apply

Organisations wishing to apply for Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degrees in the field of Higher Education are invited to submit applications online to the Education, Audiovisual and Culture Executive Agency (EACEA) in Brussels.

In addition "Frequently Asked Questions" are available in order to assist applicants in preparing their proposals.

  • FAQs:  (will be provided soon)

For practical details on "How to prepare a competitive EMJMD proposal" you can also consult the following presentation:

Before starting your application:

  1. Read the call for proposals / Erasmus+ Programme Guide / Instructions for completing the Application Package carefully.

Applicants must create an EU Login account. If you already have an EU Login account, use your e-mail address to sign in; otherwise click here to create an EU Login account. When you have created your EU Login account, return to this page.

You are now ready to start the application process:

  1. The applicant and all partner organisations must be registered in the Participant Portal. Organisations that register in the Portal receive a Participant Identification Code (PIC) that will be requested in the electronic application form. To access the Participants' portal, you will need your EU Login username and password.

Given that each applicant organisation should use only onePIC code, please first check with your institution (e.g. legal representative's office, etc.) whether such a PIC number has already been created for your organisation. For your convenience the Erasmus charter holder's list provides you with the corresponding PICs of HEIs from the Erasmus+ Programme Countries.

If you already have a PIC, you may use it to create your electronic application form. Please also note that at application stage the PIC status can be either "Validated", "Declared" or "Sleeping". In case of double reference for one and the same organisation, the "Validated" PIC should always be considered.

  1. Create your official electronic application form, also called the eForm. Use the official application package and the correct application eForm for the Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degrees action (please refer to the eForm and Annexesnavigation tabs on the left).
