Erasmus Mundus is a programme of the European Commission for cooperation and credit mobility in the field of higher education that aims to enhance the quality of European higher education and to promote dialogue and understanding between people and cultures through cooperation with EU partners. In addition, Erasmus Mundus is designed as a booster for human capacities and international cooperation  for universities through exchanges and mobility of students and staff.

Action 1: Erasmus Mundus joint programmes of outstanding quality at masters and doctoral levels including scholarships/fellowships to participate in these programmes;
Action 2: Erasmus Mundus Partnerships between European and Third Country higher education institutions, not yet EU members, through scholarships and fellowships for mobility at all academic levels;
