EUROCULTURE and NOHA awarded the Erasmus Mundus label again

03 July 2017

The international master programmes Euroculture: Society, Politics and Culture in a Global Context and International Humanitarian Action + (NOHA+) have been successful once again in acquiring the much desired Erasmus Mundus label until 2022. Euroculture is coordinated by the University of Groningen and NOHA by the University of Deusto, Bilbao.

Erasmus Mundus Master Programmes of Excellence are innovative, interdisciplinary programmes, implemented by consortia of European and non-European universities. Substantial grants are connected to the label, both to co-finance the organisation of the programme and for scholarships for staff exchange and students. A total of 38 programmes were selected by the European Commission for funding in this call for grant applications. The grant amount per programme amounts between 1.6 to 4 million euros. Euroculture has been awarded €3.558.000 and NOHA €3.393.000. Both programmes have been awarded the Erasmus Mundus label for the third time – an exceptional achievement.

On top of this, Clinical Linguistics (EMCL), coordinated by Groningen since 2015, already succeeded in attaining the Erasmus Mundus status in the EU’s previous grant call. As a result of the outcome of this EU-call, the Faculty of Arts now houses once again three Erasmus Mundus programmes, which reconfirms the faculty’s status as an important international player in the field of Higher Education in Europe.
