International Master in Rural Development scholarship

The joint International Master in Rural Development (IMRD), part of the European Erasmus Mundus program, offers the opportunity to study the European vision on rural development in its diversity of approaches and applications.
The objective is to train specialists in integrated rural development, focussed on socio-economic and institutional aspects, not only from the European Union but also from developed, developing and transition countries outside the European Union through a 2 year master program (120 ECTS) jointly organised by seven European leading institutes in agricultural economics and rural development.

The Master program is offered by Ghent University (Belgium), Agrocampus Ouest (France), Humboldt University of Berlin (Germany), the University of Cordoba (Spain), in collaboration with Wageningen University (The Netherlands), the Slovak University of Agriculture in Nitra (Slovakia) and the University of Pisa (Italy). 

The methodology consists of a combination of basic and specialised training in technical, economic and social sciences, a case study of one month, an individual master thesis and a high extent of student and scholar mobility.

One of the Erasmus Mundus programme's objectives is to encourage and enable highly qualified graduates and scholars from all over the world to obtain qualifications and/or experience in the European Union. Therefore scholarships are granted to highly qualified third-country scholars (definition see below) to carry out teaching and research assignments and scholarly work in the institutions organising the International MSc in Rural Development. 

Erasmus Mundus and IMRD consider as Third country nationals NOT from the 27 EU Member States, the EEA-EFTA states (Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway), or the candidate countries for accession to the EU (Croatia, Turkey and FYROM) or people who have NOT resided or carried out their main activities (studies, work, etc.) for more than 12 months over the past five years in any of the above countries.
