Erasmus Mundus scholarships


Erasmus Mundus label and funding

The ASC European master programme has been co-funded by the EU since 2003. During the first period, from 2003 to 2008, EU funds enabled the ASC Consortium to develop the ASC curriculum. In 2007 the ASC program has been awarded the Erasmus Mundus label and has consequently received funding for 5 course editions (2008-2013).

In 2015, the European Union has renewed its support to the ASC master’s course for a period of 5 years, including scholarships funding for 3 course editions, the first one starting in September 2016.

In 2019, we are proud to announce that the European Union awards the Erasmus Mundus label for the third time to the  ASC master’s programme. This award is based on excellence criteria with respect to quality of the academic content and teaching, expertise in the management of a European Programme and development of the employability of students. Consequently, for the next 4 course editions, candidates can benefit from Erasmus Mundus Scholarships to attend the ASC master’s programme.
