Erasmus Mundus Action 2 mobility

Different societies

The coming four years (2013-2017), the University of Groningen will be actively involved in six new Erasmus Mundus Action 2 (EMA2) projects, facilitating mobility between consortia of universities in EU and in non-EU countries and regions. All last year’s projects (11 in total) have or will have a second call for applications. Within the 17 projects, the application periods for EM scholarships are open or will open this autumn very soon. Applications for scholarships can only be submitted through the project websites.

Outgoing mobility for RUG students and staff

Outgoing mobility is possible in the projects Al Fihri, AURORA I and II, ALRAKIS II, IANUS I and II, HUMERIA, LOTUS Unlimited, EURICA and ANGLE at all levels (except for ANGLE: only available for outgoing staff) and all fields of study.

Moreover, most EMA2 projects include the possibility for outgoing mobility for EU students, even if the University of Groningen is not involved in the project (so-called target group 2 mobility – TG2).

This allows RUG students to also apply for a scholarship to e.g. the Western Balkans.
