Admission to CDE EMJMD programme requires a qualification based selection process. The same procedure shall apply for self-funded (self-paying) students and Erasmus+ funded students.


All students not receiving an Erasmus+ EMJMD scholarship within the CDE programme are considered as self-funded. This includes everyone either funding their own studies (self-payment through savings or work), getting financial assistance from family or friends, beneficiaries of scholarships other than E+ EMJMD, taking out a student loan, employer sponsorship, etc. Learn more on participation costs.

Copernicus Master in Digital Earth provides a number of Erasmus+ Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degree (EMJMD) scholarships per intake. They will be awarded based on application criteria to outstanding students.

Erasmus+ EMJMD scholarships provide complete funding and are extremely competitive, not all applicants can be admitted to the programme since the number of eligible (short-listed) applicants per intake exceeds the number of students that can be accepted. Put an emphasis on submitting a quality application including a cover and personal motivation letter, and interview that will make an impression.
