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 aim for continuation of the Erasmus Mundus status in the coming years.
Note: All references to Erasmus Mundus and Erasmus+ apply to currents students of cohort 2016 and 2017. We will apply for a continuation of the financial support by the EU.
