Students benefiting from an EMMC scholarship cannot benefit from another EU grant while pursuing their EMMC studies.
  • EM scholarship holders must spend at least two complete mobility periods in at least two of the MathMods consortium's full partners and which are located in different Programme Countries. Each of these mandatory mobility periods must include a volume of study/research or equivalent (e.g. internship, thesis preparation) corresponding to at least 30 ECTS. The mandatory mobility periods cannot be replaced by virtual mobility neither can they take place in institutions outside the consortium.
  • Erasmus Mundus scholarships are awarded exclusively for a full-time enrolment in one of the course editions.
  • The MathMods Consortium will ensure that all candidates proposed on the main or the reserve lists fulfil the 12-month rule:
    Students whose nationality is one of the Erasmus+ Partner Countries and who are not residents nor have carried out their main activity (studies, training or work) for more than a total of 12 months over the last five years in a Programme Country are considered as Partner Country students. The five-year reference period for the 12-month rule is calculated backwards as from the submission deadline.
    The 12-month rule does not apply to Partner-country candidates who for various reasons and under various circumstances have sought refuge and received a refugee status in a Programme Country
  • Students with a Partner Country nationality who do not fulfil the Partner Country criteria defined above (12-month rule) count as Programme Country students. Students with a double nationality (of a Partner and of a Programme Country) must specify the nationality under which they submit their scholarship application.
