Erasmus Mundus Masters Course Scholarships 2009/2010

MESPOM is an Erasmus Mundus Masters course in Environmental Sciences, Policy and Management operated by four leading European Universities and supported by the European Commission. MESPOM prepares students for identifying and implementing solutions to complex environmental challenges, especially in an international context.

The MESPOM study programme is in English and lasts two years. The students study in at least three out of four consortium universities: the International Institute for Industrial Environmental Economics at Lund University (Sweden), the University of Manchester (UK), Central European University, Budapest, and the University of the Aegean (Lesvos, Greece).

The European Commission’s Erasmus Mundus programme provides scholarships to outstanding students from countries outside the European Union to attend MESPOM and to scholars to participate in teaching and research. Additional forms of financial assistance are available to students of all nationalities.

The current MESPOM students and recent graduates come from 45 countries of five continents. The first alumni are employed in private and public (including UN) organizations and academia.

MESPOM invites applications from all countries. Successful candidates must have a good first degree in a subject related to environmental sciences, policy and management. Candidates with other first degrees are also considered if they show commitment to environmental issues, usually through work experience.
