Application process

This year's application deadline for students has passed. The next application round will be opened in the autumn of 2017. The deadline is February 1, 2018.

Please note that student applicants should not send their application documents directly to the EMCL+ consortium or any of its partner universites but to uni-assist, an agency specialised in managing applications to universities.

Any technical questions about the application procedure itself will only be answered by uni-assist. The contact partners of the EMCL+ consortium, reachable via info@emcl.eu will only answer questions related to the EMCL+/Erasmus Mundus programme itself.

Please also note that applying via uni-assist requires the payment of a non-refundable application fee. The general application fee amounts to €75. Please be aware that uni-assist will only start processing your application after having received the application fee!

If you apply only shortly before the deadline we strongly advise you to include a document that confirms that the payment has been carried out (e.g. an account statement, confirmation of bank transfer) or to include the credit card payment form availabe in the FAQ-section on the uni-assist website to speed up the processing of your application. Delayed payment of the application fee may have the consequence that your application will be considered late and thus discarded. Please read through the information on the uni-assist website carefully.

If you wish to apply to the EMCL Erasmus Mundus programme, please send the complete application package directly (i.e . c/o) to uni-assist at the following postal address (an online application is not possible):
