Submitting an application for a degree program at any University is not an easy task since the student applicants are asked to first check eligibility criteria, gather required documents, and complete those application submission protocols and if we talk about applying for admissions on scholarships in Europe then that would add more complexities to the overall application process.
Therefore, all my students interested to fly Europe for education need to pay attention to this article because I’m going to elaborate on the application process to apply for a fully funded European Commission Scholarships 2024 under the badge of Erasmus Mundus.
You will be glad to know that most Erasmus Mundus scholarships including EMJMS programs are exempted from GRE, IELTS, and application fee requirements which makes it super easy for most international students to apply for these scholarships in Europe.
Subjects Offered by European Commission on Erasmus Mundus
This is very important step because there is a yearly update on Erasmus Mundus Subjects Catalogue book which includes all the subjects/degree options supported by European Commission for Erasmus Mundus scholarships. Also, in case your subject is not available in this Erasmus munds subject catalog then you must not worry and keep checking this list after some time because European commission keeps updating this subject list every now and then.
List of Sponsorships Offered by European Commission Scholarships
I am going to start with the highest attraction point of any European commission scholarship under Erasmus Mundus and that is the allocation of monthly stipend money of around €1200 with free education/residence, sponsorship for air tickets, health insurance, funding for experimental work, and money disbursement for attending conferences or academic seminars.
IELTS Requirement for Erasmus Mundus Scholarships: Optional
International English Language Testing System (IELTS) is mandatory for some direct European scholarships but when we talk about Erasmus Mundus or any European commission scholarship then IETS is not the only option because IELTS alternative tests such as Duolingo (DET), PTE, TOEFL, or CanTEST are also accepted by most European scholarship programs under Erasmus program. But those students who have cleared an IELTS exam in ‘Academic’ mode of it with a band score of 6.5 directly qualify to apply for a fully-funded European Erasmus Mundus scholarship program in 2024.
How to Submit Application for Erasmus Mundus Scholarship?
International students would find the application process of all Erasmus Mundus Scholarships easy since all the applications are made online on European commission scholarships website; where scholarship applicants are required to create a student profile, add a biodata, attach all necessary documents (such as research proposal, study plan, motivation letter, an intent letter, recommendation letters, academic degrees and experience letters), and submit this online application.
Once you submit an application for Erasmus mundus then in next step you would be required to wait for some time since your application would then be evaluated and once that process completes then you might be asked for an interview or would directly be informed of your selection or rejection.
For example if you get selected for Erasmus mundus scholarship by European commission then your final step would be to apply for a European/schengen Study VISA as per the European country where your university is located and upon receiving a study VISA for Europe; you can fly there to start your education.
