MEME was initiated in 2010 as a joint master degree programme under the Erasmus Mundus Programme of the European Commission.
The first five editions of the programme (cohorts 2010-2014) were very successful with virtually all students graduating in nominal time, most with excellent marks and achievements (like first-authored publications), and >90% found a PhD position or a job within three months after graduation. The high level of satisfaction among MEME alumni, expressed in a survey conducted by the Erasmus Mundus Association (EMA) was acknowledged by the Erasmus Mundus Quality Review in 2014, allowing the continuation of the programme for three more editions (cohort 2015-2017) under the Erasmus+ programme. We are happy to report that the MEME programme once again received Erasmus Mundus funding for cohort 2019 – 2023.
Note: All references to Erasmus Mundus and Erasmus+ do not apply to students of cohort 2018.
