Interested in the Erasmus Mundus Masters (EMJM) scholarship and wondering what you need to apply.

P.S.: Undergraduate students, you can start putting these together before you graduate.

Here are the components your application package MAY or MUST include:

1. International Passport: Having a passport is crucial if you want to take advantage of international opportunities. By obtaining one, you will ensure that you don’t miss out on any exciting opportunities that come your way.
2. An Undergraduate Degree Certificate and Academic Transcripts: As a student, it’s essential to strive for top-notch grades. Keep in mind that your competition will be students from various countries, so it’s vital to be prepared.

Begin working towards achieving this objective as soon as possible. It would be beneficial for you to obtain a copy of your academic transcript if you have already completed your studies and currently don’t possess one.
3. Statement of Purpose (SOP)/Motivation Letter: Your statement of purpose or motivation letter is a reflection of your unique character and the remarkable qualities that distinguish you. Emphasising your value and showcasing your strengths to the evaluation committee is vital.
a. When applying for a course or programme, it is important to highlight your motivation for doing so.
b. It is also helpful to detail your academic and/or professional achievements, as well as any previous work or research experience.
c. Leadership and volunteering experience are also important to mention.
d. You should explain why you chose the specific course or programme and what you hope to gain from it.
e. Finally, it is helpful to detail your post-study plans.
When writing your SOP or motivation letter, it’s helpful to use the STAR approach. This involves breaking down your experiences into four parts: Situation, Task, Action, and Result.

Situation – describe a challenge in your country or the world that the course or programme will address.
Task – explain how you’ve attempted to solve this issue.
Action – detail the steps you took to address the problem.
ResultĀ – describe the outcome of your actions.

4. Academic CV (Europass Format): Preferably, use the Europass format to create your CV. A Europass CV looks a little different than you are used to but with a template, you have nothing to worry about.
5. Recommendation Letters: If you don’t have a good relationship with your professors, it’s important to start building one now. Focus on finding recommenders who are willing to write a strong letter for you. Don’t prioritize big names over quality.
6. Proof of English Proficiency: Your department can provide you with a Letter of English Proficiency which confirms your previous studies in English. Alternatively, you can consider taking IELTS/TOEFL, but check with your programme since option one is becoming widely accepted.
7. Proof of Residency: This document serves as proof of your residency in a particular country for a specific duration. It also determines whether your application will be treated as that of a programme country or partner country applicant.
8. Training/Publications/Conferences: If you have participated in a laboratory experiment, written and published an article, or presented at a conference, this presents a great opportunity to showcase your achievements.
9. Extra-curricular Activities: Start building work experience by strategically volunteering. This means assessing your skills and interests and finding an organization that will appreciate them and allows you to use them. It’s a mutually beneficial exchange of value.
10. A professional Email Address: It’s a good idea to create a professional-looking email address if you haven’t already. You can easily create one for free using Gmail. Instead of using [email protected], consider using a format like [email protected].
Finally, I understand that the process can be daunting and cost-intensive for some.
– You can get family and friends to invest in you
– Create time to research and ask questions that show you have done some work
– Find a like-minded community
You can do this! Rooting for you!
