Visiting Scholars

Scholarships for visiting scholars from non-EU/EEA countries

Notice! (2015 is the last year students can be admitted to the MALLL programme - Batch 10 is the last batch)


The Erasmus Mundus programme welcomes applications for visiting scholarships from scholars who wish to visit MA LLL universities for a minimum of two weeks. 

Scholars are academics working at Higher Education Institutions (university, research institute, etc.) with substantial teaching and research experience.

The scholarship is 1,950 EURO per week from the European Commission. This grant is to cover all costs of travel, subsistence, insurance, accommodation, etc. Scholars do not receive any other additional funds from the hosting universities.

 Application

Deadline

be requested to plan their visits at IOE (February - June), Deusto (February - June), AU
