Erasmus Mundus Action 2 (EMA2) is a European Commission mobility program. It promotes the exchange of undergraduate, graduate and PhD students, as well as academics and staff, between EU universities and non-EU universities through the provision of scholarships. Under this program, consortia of EU universities cooperate with partner universities from a certain geographic region, so-called Third Country universities. Exchange is possible in both directions, but only between the two regions (EU – Third Countries), not within the EU. The scholarships cover flights, insurance, visa costs as well as a monthly subsistence allowance between 1,000 and 2,500 Euro. Host universities do not charge tuition fees under the EMA2 scheme.

Viadrina is currently participating in two EMA2 projects. Further information about these projects can be found at the respective links:

  • HERMES (Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Ukraine – only for the Faculty of Social and Cultural Sciences and the Faculty of Law)
  • PUEDES  (Latin America – all Faculties)
