Mobility is a key component of this program. Each candidate will be expected to conduct their PhD under the supervision of at least two different European institutions, following joint courses with the other students in your cohort.
Please note that the Erasmus Mundus guidelines require that all PhD students:
- Perform their training/research periods in at least two European countries represented in the consortium; for Category B fellowship holders, two of the countries visited during the EMJD activities must be different from the country in which the doctoral candidate has obtained his/her last university degree;
- Spend most of the doctorate period in the European countries represented in the consortium or among the associated partners. However, if the EMJD consortium includes third-country full and/or associated partners:
- Category A fellowship holders can spend a training/research/ fieldwork period of a maximum duration of one semester (or 6 months, cumulative or consecutive) in these countries and only if different from the student’s country of origin; periods in excess of this duration may not be covered by the EMJD fellowship.
- Category B fellowship holders can spend up to one year (cumulative or consecutive) of their doctorate activities in these countries; periods in excess of this duration may not be covered by the EMJD fellowship.
