places will be offered, according to the following principles of the Erasmus+ rules:

  • Academic and professional excellence of candidates,
  • Motivation and professional objectives according to the specialization of the applicant,
  • Criteria for ensuring equal opportunity.

Due to the Covid pandemic, the ASC board decided to  postpone the start of the 2020 student intake by one year, to September 2021. As a consequence all Erasmus Mundus grants have already been awarded to students selected in 2020 to  start the course in Sept. 2021. There will be no additional Erasmus Mundus scholarship available for this intake.

However, a call for application will open for self funded students willing to start the course in September 2021, with partial tuition fee waivers.

A unique application session will be open for admission to the ASC EMJMD in 2021, wihout EM scholarships, from November 15th, 2020 to April 15th, 2021 (23:59, Brussels’ time).
