Erasmus Mundus - MUNDUS URBANO Scholarships

The double degree master course MUNDUS URBANO contributes to capacity building in urban development planning especially in countries of the South and the East. It places a second focus on rules and practices of international cooperation projects, where the unsatisfied demand for qualified experts is evident and in which European culture, politics and professional knowledge remain a key element.


Finally, the MUNDUS URBANO course chooses a highly interdisciplinary approach combining physical planning, economic and social development aspects, which all impact equally on the fate of cities. Especially professional staff in a leadership positions – like a director of a municipal planning office or a consultant working in a cooperation project (typical careers for graduates from this Master course) – need to develop the capacity to comprehensively understand urban development processes and to conceive possible strategies for intervention.

the main objective of this Master course is to prepare both, professionals and academics, for critically analyzing and assessing the growing problems in urban areas internationally and to increase their capacity to develop appropriate solutions in terms of architecturally, socially, economically and ecologically sustainable urban development.

In the past Erasmus Mundus scholarships were only available for Non-EU citizens. This has been changed, and now ERASMUS MUNDUS SCHOLARSHIPS are also available for candidates from the EU! Full scholarships (2 years) are available for non-EU students, Western Balkan coutries and Turkey, to cover the tuition fee and all expenses of study (48 000€) Part scholarships (2 years) are available for EU students
(20 000 € / year)

In order to be accepted as a student in the Masters course, applicants must provide proof of a set of eligibility criteria, including academic qualification, relevant work experience, language proficiency in English and a convincing justification for selecting this course in the light of personal interest and intended career.
