In July 2011, GEMMA was once again selected for funding under the prestigious Erasmus Mundus program from amongst 177 competing project proposals as ¨a pilot project and model in the field of Women's Studies and Gender Studies in a European and global perspective.¨GEMMA's academic excellence is recognized and supported by the European Commission, which first selected GEMMA as an Erasmus Mundus Master's Program in 2006.
GEMMA is a joint interdisciplinary programme that provides high quality academic education and professional competencies for personnel working or intending to work in the areas of Women's Studies, Gender Studies and Equal Opportunities across Europe and beyond. Such a wide span of options and combinations makes the programme attractive to students worldwide. Courses are taught by the most distinguished and highly recognized professors in the fields of research in each one of the departments involved. Summer schools and language courses are on offer for both students and scholars. GEMMA offers added value through its geographically balanced consortium, which makes it possible for students to choose their international mobility route amongst seven participating universities.

The award of Erasmus Mundus scholarships (2017-2019) is conditional on the GEMMA Master course renewal under the Erasmus+ call EAC/A03/2016. Only if successful in this competitive project call, will GEMMA be able to award any Erasmus Mundus scholarships. The selection results of this call will be announced mid-2017, after which students will be informed whether or not they will receive an EM scholarship.
Studyportals Tip: Students can search online for independent or external scholarships that can help fund their studies. Check the scholarships to see whether you are eligible to apply. Many scholarships are either merit-based or needs-based.
Together with the ISIC Association and British Council IELTS, Studyportals offers you the chance to receive up to £10000 to expand your horizon and study abroad. We want to ultimately encourage you to study abroad in order to experience and explore new countries, cultures and languages.
