The Erasmus Mundus Joint Master  in Urban Climate and Sustainability is open to students who meet the following minimum eligibility requirements:

  • Bachelor degree or equivalent in a field relating to Urban Sustainability, particularly one of the main streams of the programme; Planning, Management, or Science.
  • At least two years working experience equivalent to full-time after Bachelor degree, counting up to the month before the course start.
  • English competence equivalent to at least IELTS 6.5 in average, and minimum 6.0 in any of the four components (listening, reading, writing, speaking). The required overall score corresponds to about TOEFL 90 or CEFR C1. In case you presently have no valid certificate, you are required to make a CEFR self-evaluation in the application form, which will be followed-up by an interview if you qualify for the second phase. Selected candidates must submit necessary English competency certificate, which is also required by UK immigration authorities.
    Please note that a certificate stating that your entire degree course was conducted in English is not sufficient to prove your English language proficiency for this course.

You may test your preliminary eligibility at our online self-test.

Applicants not meeting any of these requirements will be rejected and given notice about the reasons soon after the eligibility check. NOTE that previous holders of EMJMD scholarships are ineligible for another one, but may apply to the course on own/other financing.

Finally selected students will be required to submit certified copies of university diplomas, proof of working experience, residence certificate, and valid language test. Since the time frame between close of application and acceptance is limited, we recommend that you prepare for these certificates as soon as possible.
