The European Commission's Erasmus Mundus program provides scholarships to outstanding students from within and outside the European Union to attend Mundus MAPP and to visiting scholars to participate in teaching and research. The Consortium universities also support these students by offering partial tuition fee waivers to Erasmus Mundus scholarship recipients.
Mundus MAPP provides a detailed and systematic understanding of how political institutions, processes and public policies operate and interact from the global political economy through to national and local levels with a direct focus on European engagements at these levels of governance. The multidisciplinary curriculum is conceptually grounded in public policy, international relations, development studies, public administration and public management. The program also provides practical work experience and transferable skills gained through an internship programme. Mundus MAPP prepares graduates for international professional careers as policy-makers, policy-analysts and advisors in either politics, the civil service, international organisations or the corporate and non-governmental sectors.
The Mundus MAPP study program lasts two years. The first or foundation year is spent either at the Institute of Social Studies in the Hague, the Netherlands, or at the University of York in the UK. Having completed their courses and a thesis students participate in a summer school, and move for a second academic year either at the Barcelona Institute of International Studies in Spain or to the Central European University in Budapest, Hungary. Students undertake an internship normally after the second academic year.
Mundus MAPP graduates receive two of the following MA degrees as well as a diploma supplement at the end of their studies:
- MA in Development Studies from the Institute of Social Studies; OR
- MA in Public Administration and Public Policy from the University of York.
In combination with:
- MA in Public Policy from the Central European University; OR
- MA in International Relations from the Barcelona Institute of International Studies
