    Visiting scholars

    During the Programme, the consortium will host visiting scholars (academics) from other universities around the world who will be involved in research as well as teaching and supervision of the Masters students.

    Scholars will be allocated among the consortium's universities following scholars’ preferences and their fields of research.

    Scholars will contribute to both teaching and research.

    Third-country scholars (i.e. scholars from countries other than the EU member states, the EEA-EFTA states or the candidate countries for accession to the EU) are eligible to apply for an Erasmus Mundus scholarship to visit Consortium institutions for a limited period of time.

    In order to be eligible, visiting scholars cannot have lived in, or conducted their main activity in, an EU/EEA-EFTA member state for more than 12 months over the past five years. 


    The scholarship of 1,200 Euros per week covers travel and living expenses in Europe for the full duration of the stay which should be between 2 weeks and 3 months.

    In 2012-2014, scholarships for third country visiting scholars will be available.
