Erasmus Mundus - NOHA Mundus Scholarships

The NOHA European Master's in International Humanitarian Action was selected by the European Commission among the first 19 Erasmus Mundus Masters Courses, involving 82 European universities, which started at the beginning of the 2004-2005 academic year. Erasmus Mundus Masters Courses are selected for five years. This implies that the NOHA consortium has committed itself to maintaining the Course and to hosting third-country students and scholars for five academic years running.

The Erasmus Mundus programme is a co-operation and mobility programme in the field of higher education which promotes the European Union as a centre of excellence in learning around the world. It supports European top-quality Masters Courses and enhances the visibility and attractiveness of European higher education in third countries. Erasmus Mundus Masters Courses constitute the central component around which Erasmus Mundus is built. They are high-quality integrated courses at masters level offered by a consortium of at least three universities in at least three different European countries. The courses must be "integrated" to be selected under Erasmus Mundus, which means that they must foresee a study period in at least two of the three universities and that it must lead to the award of a recognised double, multiple or joint diploma.
