The Erasmus Mundus Scholarship

Am I a programme country or a partner country applicant?

Programme Country applicants include students who are citizens of one of the countries of the European Union, North Macedonia, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway or Turkey and Serbia.

Applicants from all other countries (who are citizens of one of the countries not listed above), are considered Partner Country Applicants provided that they are not residents nor have carried out their main activity (studies, training or work) for more than a total of 12 months over the last five years in any of the Programme Countries listed above.

Which costs are covered by the scholarship?

The Erasmus Mundus scholarship covers the course fees, contribution to travel and installation and subsistence costs.

The amount received by the successful candidates for travel and installation costs is set by the EC and depends on the distance between the candidate’s residence at the time of the deadline of the student scholarship application and University of Wolverhampton.

The successful candidates will receive 1000 euro per month (when not in their country of residence).

Why do I need to prove my current residential address at the application stage?

For all applicants for the Erasmus Mundus scholarship, the European Commission requests to capture current residential status of all applicants.

Scholarship allowances are also dependent on the current residency of applicants. This has to be the residential address of the applicant at the time of application, and applicants must provide supporting documents to prove their residency.

Does the scholarship include financial support for my family?

The scholarship does not include any financial support for the candidates’ family/dependents.

What supporting documents will I be given for my visa application?
