MEME was initiated in 2010 as a joint master degree programme under the Erasmus Mundus Programme of the European Commission. As from 2014, all educational activities of the European Commission are integrated in the new Erasmus+ Programme.
This programme combines all schemes for education, training, youth and sport, including Erasmus Mundus. The Erasmus+ programme aims to enhance the quality of higher education in Europe, to promote the European Union as a centre of excellence in learning around the world and promote intellectual dialogue and understanding between people and cultures through cooperation with partner countries. In addition, it contributes to the development of human resources and the international cooperation capacity of higher education institutions in non-European countries by increasing mobility between the European Union and these countries.
Note: All references to Erasmus Mundus and Erasmus+ apply to all current cohorts, whether it will apply to new cohorts (cohort 2018 and onward), will be known in June 2018. We will apply for a continuation of the financial support by the EU and we are optimistic that our application will be successful. However, there is no guarantee that this will be the case.
