How to Prepare for Erasmus Mundus?
This is an early notice to give you awareness and prepare early for it.
You can open the catalog of Erasmus + Master programs and go through each program one by one and see which program you fit in (Do wait for more Masters programs to be updated in the previous list).
Erasmus + programs are not most of the time exactly the same discipline/major but multi-disciplinary. So, you have to open similar-looking words in program names, relevant to your degree and check if you fit in there, fully or partially, then you can apply.
Open the list of programs being offered by Erasmus Mundus Scholarship 2020. Programs may have very strange names. You may or may not find the traditional names of Masters as we have in Pakistan such as Masters in Electrical Engineering, Masters in Biotechnology.
So, open the links of Master’s degree programs which even look slightly relevant to you. Open the website and if you see your degree or profile or work experience, partially or fully fit into details of that program, then for this program, you must apply. Finalize 03 most relevant programs to your profile.
Check the requirements of programs and try to prepare for them early such as Statement of purpose, motivation letters, personal statements, etc. No need to contact a professor or university or taking admission in the university. Just apply on respective websites of programs and if get selected, everything will be dealt with by the programs.
