The International Master in South European Studies (EUROSUD) is designed for students who wish to acquire unparalleled regional expertise as well as a sound grounding in international affairs and pursue a career in the public, private or non-profit sectors or further academic study through a PhD programme. Graduates will be equipped with the academic knowledge, research skills, language skills and practical employability skills through this jointly developed and delivered programme.
EUROSUD brings together a network of six European partner universities, significant cultural organisations, think tanks and policy practitioners with unparalleled expertise and knowledge of the region to offer a unique multi-disciplinary, flexible and integrated curriculum that facilitates cultural immersion through three international mobility periods, a multidisciplinary approach that sits between area studies and international affairs and critical tools and transferable skills that strengthen graduate employability.
An array of academic conferences, workshops and other socio-cultural events involving all consortium partners will help to make your EUROSUD experience a truly rewarding one in terms of making lasting friendships and equipping you for a future professional or research career.
Scholarship applications for the 2021-2023 cohort will open on 1 October.

All applications are subject to an eligibility check which covers all aspects of the application: respect of the application deadline, completeness of the application file, eligibility of the candidate in relation to the Erasmus Mundus criteria. Applicants who fail to provide necessary documentation by the appropriate deadline will be excluded from the application procedure and will be informed of the specific reason for ineligibility.
To be eligible to be considered for scholarship, students must first have secured a place on the degree programme (unconditional or conditional). The University of Glasgow postgraduate admissions office assesses all applications and will reply directly to the applicant to let them know if they have been offered a place. Applicants who receive an offer of a place on the degree programme, and who have submitted the scholarship application on time, will be put forward to the scholarship competition.
The EUROSUD consortium selection committee assess each application according to the following criteria:
- Academic merit (e.g. relevance and level of academic qualifications) – 30%
- Supporting personal statement – 40%
- Quality of (academic) references – 10%
- Other (e.g. relevant research/professional experiences/interests) – 20%
When a main list scholarship student withdraws, he/she is replaced by the first eligible candidate on the reserve list. In this particular case, the eligibility criterion concerns the nationality of the reserve list candidate and the rule concerning the presence of a maximum of three nationals from the same country among the scholarship holders in each intake. If there are already three other students with the same nationality on the main list, the consortium will have to take the next eligible candidate respecting its own ranking list (European Commission’s regulations).
Appeal procedure for candidates who fail to secure a scholarship
All candidates will be notified of the decision of the scholarship selection committee by email only in April. Candidates who do not secure a scholarship and who wish to appeal the decision of the scholarship selection committee must do so in writing by email within 2 weeks (14 days) from the point of notification by the EUROSUD consortium of their failure to win a scholarship. The email should be addressed to the EUROSUD consortium at the following address: email@example.com. The email subject heading should contain the words “EUROSUD scholarship appeal”. The reasons for the appeal must be clearly stated in the email. Note: A candidate may appeal ONLY on the grounds of defective or unfair procedure by the EUROSUD scholarship selection committee.
HOW TO APPLY
EUROSUD Erasmus Mundus Scholarship applications are OPEN for September 2021 entry – APPLY NOW! We welcome applications from students around the world.
You can apply as:
- an Erasmus Mundus scholarship-funded student
- a self-funded student
Self-funded students participating in the EUROSUD programme may benefit from receipt of Erasmus+ grant funding, which the Consortium will apply for on the students’ behalf. This funding is dependent on availability in a given semester; however, when available it usually equates to around 300-350 euros per month for six months during mobility 2, and six months during mobility 3.
All applications for the EUROSUD programme and Erasmus Mundus scholarships must be submitted online to the University of Glasgow. We cannot accept applications any other way.
You have 42 days to submit your application once you begin the process. You may save and return to your application as many times as you wish to update information, complete sections or upload supporting documents such as your final transcript or your language test. For more information about submitting documents or other topics related to applying to a postgraduate taught programme, check Frequently Asked Questions.
Brexit Statement February 2020
We would like to assure students and applicants that their current or future participation in EUROSUD will not be impacted by Brexit. The programme will continue to run until the end of its current funding period in 2024 and we anticipate that it will continue beyond then.
The Withdrawal Agreement foresees that the UK will continue to participate in the current 2014-2020 EU programmes, including Erasmus+, as if the UK was an EU Member State until the closure of the programmes. This means that UK beneficiaries can continue to take part in grants awarded under the current MFF until their end date, even if it is after 2020.
This means that the EUROSUD programme will continue to run in its current form until at least the 2022-2024 intake.
As a UK-based institution, the University of Glasgow will fully participate in Erasmus+ until further notice.
We will keep all students and applicants up to date with information as it becomes available.
