Nuclear Fusion Science and Engineering Physics (FUSION-EP ) Scholarships

The Joint European Master in Nuclear Fusion Science and Engineering Physics (FUSION-EP ) is offered by the following partners:

o Universiteit Gent, Belgium (coordinator)
o Université Henri Poincaré, Nancy, France
o Universidad Complutense de Madrid, Spain
o Universidad Carlos III de Madrid, Spain
o Universität Stuttgart, Germany

The partners have a long relationship in the framework of the coordinated EURATOM research programme on nuclear fusion. The aim of the Masters programme is to provide a high-level multinational research-oriented education in fusion-related engineering physics, in close relation to the research activities of the partners, and with a well-integrated language and cultural experience. The combined and harmonized teaching and research of the 7 universities offers a far greater variety of competences in the field of fusion science and engineering physics than could be provided by each of the single universities, and therefore guarantees a significant added value for the students in terms of specialisation opportunities. The Joint European Masters Programme offers a genuine European opportunity for Master level studies in a field which is of crucial importance to contribute to the solution of the ever more urgent and vital problem of world energy supply.

Per academic year a limited number of Erasmus Mundus scholarships are available for FUSION-EP students from third countries.
Category A (Non-Eroupean Student) scholarships will be distributed over 2 years with a higher starting month allowance in September of 2800 EUR and 1200 over the remaining 11 months

Maximum contribution to the EMMC participation costs (including insurance
coverage: € 4000 / semester or € 8000** per academic year or € 16.000 for two years.

Monthly allowance:€ 1000 / month

Admission Criteria
The European Master FUSION-EP offers admission to applicants who appear to have the highest potential for graduate study and who, with the benefit of a graduate education, are the most likely to contribute substantially to their academic or professional fields through teaching, research, or professional practice.

The minimum graduate admission requirements are:
(1) A bachelor's degree or recognized equivalent from an accredited institution (minimum 3 years study)
(2) Sufficient undergraduate training to do graduate work in the chosen field
(3) A satisfactory scholastic average

The FUSION-EP is open to all students who have a Bachelor's degree or a recognized equivalent academic degree of minimum 3 years study in
