The Europubhealth+ programme is an Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degree that has been recognized as a Master of excellence by the European Commission since 2006.

ERASMUS+: Erasmus Mundus excellence scholarships

The Europubhealth+ consortium awards Erasmus+: Erasmus Mundus scholarships to the best candidates who apply before the indicated deadline each year.

When creating an online profile, applicants must choose the relevant category based on the following rules:

All countries in the world are divided in two categories under the Erasmus+ programme:

  • Programme countries are the 28 European Union member states + Macedonia, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway, Turkey and Serbia.
  • Partner countries are all the countries in the world that are not listed above.

Please note that the status of the United Kingdom is still pending on the outcomes of the "Brexit" negociations with the European Union.

  • Students fall under the Programme country category when:
    • they are citizens of one of the Programme countries
    • OR
    • they are citizens of a Partner country but they have been residents or have carried out their main activity (studies, training or work) for more than a total of 12 months over the last five years in one of the Programme Countries. The five year reference period is calculated backwards as from January 2020 (this 12-month residency rule does not apply to candidates who for various reasons and under various circumstances have sought refuge and received a refugee status in a Programme Country).
  • Students fall under the Partner country category when they are not a Programme Country student as defined by the above mentioned rules.
  • Students with a double nationality (of both a Partner and a Programme Country) must specify the nationality under which they submit their application.

    • Students who have already obtained an Erasmus Mundus scholarship at Master/Doctoral level are not eligible for an additional scholarship within the Europubhealth+ programme.
    • Students benefiting from an Erasmus Mundus scholarship cannot benefit from another EU grant while pursuing their Europubhealth+ studies.
    • Students can apply to a maximum of three different Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degrees.
    • Scholarship holders spending part of the Europubhealth+ course in their country of residence are not entitled to benefit from the monthly subsistence allowance for this period.
    • Students must be committed to studying full time during the two years of the Europubhealth+ Master course.

The application for the Erasmus+:Erasmus Mundus scholarships is done when applying online for the Europubhealth+ Master course before the indicated deadline.

 

ERASMUS+ mobility grant for Year 2

Europubhealth+ self-funded students who do not already benefit from an Erasmus Mundus excellence scholarship may apply for an Erasmus+ mobility grant to support the costs of their second academic year in the programme. The Erasmus+ grant is not means tested and is open to students of all nationalities. The Erasmus+ grant (around 200-300€ per month depending on the destination country) is only intended to assist students with additional costs incurred during the second year of study. It is not enough to cover all expenses and should not be relied on for essential living costs such as food and rent.

Please note that the availability of Erasmus+ grants for students who start the programme at the University of Sheffield is not assured as it is subject to the ongoing Brexit negociations.
