After four successful years, the Cartography M.Sc. has been selected for Erasmus+ by the Education, Audiovisual and Culture Executive Agency of the European Union. One section of the Erasmus+ programme is the “Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degree”, which supports excellent international Master courses in Europe. The “Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degree” aims to foster quality enhancements, innovation, excellence and internationalization in higher education institutions.
The five year grant includes a preparatory year (starting mid of October 2014), followed by three student intakes from 2015 until 2018. During this time, 38 highly remunerated scholarships might be awarded to the best students.
Due to participation in the “Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degree” programme, the attractiveness of the Cartography M.Sc. will be raised further to get the best cartography students. The Master course enables a unique curriculum and improves the level of competences and skills of Master graduates and their employability.
Finally, the selection allows also the University of Twente of the Netherlands to join in the consortium as the fourth equal partner within the awarded joint degree.
