Applying for a degree program at a University is a challenging task that involves checking eligibility criteria, gathering required documents, and completing application submission protocols. The process becomes even more complex when applying for admissions on scholarships in Europe. In this article, we will discuss the application process for the fully funded European Commission Scholarships 2024 under the badge of Erasmus Mundus.
One of the advantages of Erasmus Mundus scholarships is that most of them are exempt from GRE, IELTS, and application fee requirements, making it easier for international students to apply for these scholarships in Europe.
The Erasmus Mundus Subjects Catalogue includes all the subjects and degree options supported by the European Commission for the scholarships. It is important to check this list regularly, as it is updated yearly, and new subjects may be added.
The European Commission Scholarships under Erasmus Mundus offer a variety of benefits, including a monthly stipend of around €1200, free education and residence, sponsorship for air tickets, health insurance, funding for experimental work, and money for attending conferences or academic seminars.
When it comes to language requirements, IELTS is just one of the options for Erasmus Mundus scholarships. Alternative tests such as Duolingo (DET), PTE, TOEFL, or CanTEST are also accepted. Additionally, students who have cleared an IELTS exam in ‘Academic’ mode with a band score of 6.5 directly qualify to apply for a fully-funded European Erasmus Mundus scholarship program in 2024.
The application process for Erasmus Mundus Scholarships is made online on the European commission scholarships website. Applicants are required to create a student profile, add biodata, attach necessary documents (such as a research proposal, study plan, motivation letter, intent letter, recommendation letters, academic degrees, and experience letters), and submit the online application. After submission, applicants will undergo an evaluation process, and those selected may be asked for an interview or directly informed of their selection.
If selected for an Erasmus Mundus scholarship, the final step would be to apply for a European/Schengen Study VISA for the country where the university is located. Upon receiving the VISA, students can fly to Europe to start their education.
