Fully-Funded Master's Scholarships in Big Data Management and Analytics with Erasmus 2020

Erasmus Mundus is offering fully-funded scholarships for graduate students who want to get a Master's Degree in Big Data Management and Analytics. Scholars who join the Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degree’s Programme 'BDMA' will visit and study in several countries, with different languages and cultures.

Eligibility and Conditions:

  • Candidates must have been awarded a Bachelor’s degree (i.e., the equivalent of 180 ECTS) with a major in computer science, from an accredited university. The university has to be listed in the World Higher Education Database (WHED) or be included in the following university rankings:
  • Candidates must be able to demonstrate proficiency in English by means of an internationally recognized test equivalent to level B2 in the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR).
  • The consortium will rely on how certification bodies evaluate their own equivalences against this framework, e.g., Cambridge General English FCE, IELTS (Academic) 5.5, TOEFL (paper-based) 570, TOEFL (computer-based) 230, TOEFL (internet-based) 72, etc.
  • To apply for a visa as a self-funded student, you will need to have a financial guarantor. The guarantor must be able to prove that he has a monthly income that is sufficiently high for him to be able to pay you 666 EUR/month while retaining 1254,82 EUR/month for himself and 150 EUR/month for each dependent. If these conditions cannot be met, the Belgian consulate will not issue a student visa.
  • Students applying for ERASMUS MUNDUS JMD scholarship for a specific academic intake are not allowed to submit a scholarship application to more than three ERASMUS MUNDUS JMD consortia.
  • Students who have already obtained ERASMUS MUNDUS JMD scholarship, an Erasmus Mundus Master Course scholarship, or an Erasmus Mundus Joint Doctorate scholarship are not eligible to apply for an additional scholarship under the ERASMUS MUNDUS JMD action.
  • Students benefiting from ERASMUS MUNDUS JMD scholarship cannot benefit from another EU grant while pursuing their studies in an Erasmus+ ERASMUS MUNDUS JMD.
