Internships and Jobs at Erasmus Mundus in 2023
Erasmus Mundus EMLex internships and jobs for the 2023 batch are now available. Excellent international applicants are offered Erasmus jobs and internships. International applicants can apply for Erasmus Mundus Jobs. Erasmus Mundus Internships are also available for applicants. Applying for Erasmus Mundus Jobs and Internships does not require IELTS.
During the two-year programme, students will spend the second semester with all other students at a different university each year. In the third semester, it is possible to study at a third university in the EMLex consortium on request. The first and fourth semesters are spent studying at the so-called home university. Erasmus Mundus applicants are given the option of naming their top choices for their home university; the selection committee then distributes the applicants evenly among the partner universities.
The Erasmus Mundus programme is fee-based, which means that students must pay participation fees to the EMLex consortium each semester. In exchange, the consortium pays for costs incurred during the course of the studies, such as tuition and administration fees, health insurance, library fees, and so on. Furthermore, it organises a supporting programme. Before beginning their studies, all students must sign a Student Agreement.
Coverage and Benefits of the Erasmus Mundus Scholarship
Contribution to living expenses: 1,000 € per month for the duration of the EMLex study programme (24 months maximum)
Contribution towards travel and installation expenses:
For scholarship holders who live in a programme country, the annual travel allowance is €1,000.

Scholarship holders residing in a partner country 4,000 kilometres or more from the coordinating institution (Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg): 3,000 € per year for travel costs + 1,000 € for installation costs

If you are a student from a partner country and study at Stellenbosch, you will only receive a contribution to subsistence costs for the duration of your three-month stay.
EMLex offers 15 Erasmus scholarships, internships, and jobs for the 2023 intake. Courses will begin in September or October 2020, depending on the home university. 75 percent of the scholarships are awarded to students from partner countries, while 25 percent are awarded to students from programme countries.
Non-EU countries, with the exception of Turkey, Macedonia, Serbia, Norway, Liechtenstein, and Iceland, are considered partners.
28 EU member states plus Turkey, Macedonia, Norway, Serbia, Liechtenstein, and Iceland are participating in the programme.
If you are from a partner country and have spent at least 12 months of your previous five years doing your main activities (studies, work, training) in any programme country, you are considered an applicant from a programme country.Internships and Jobs at Erasmus Mundus in 2023
