7 Nigerians Who Have Won 2022 Erasmus Mundus Scholarship with Second Class Upper Honours (2:1)
Nigerian students in 2022 whose dream is to further their education in Europe through the prestigious Erasmus Mundus Scholarship program have begun receiving good news since February.
The scholarship has been misconceived by many to be the birthrights of students who finished their bachelors (1st cycle) programmes with a First Class Honours (Distinction), hence a lot of students with Second Class Upper and Lower Divisions do not apply.
This post is a compilation of Nigerian Scholars with second class Bachelors degree who have so far been awarded the scholarship this year.
What is Erasmus Mundus Scholarship?
Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degrees (EMJMDs) award EU-funded scholarships to Master students from around the world that cover covering tuition, travel, and a living allowance.
The programmes last from one to two years during which students study in at least two different European countries, and obtain a joint, double degree, or multiple degree. Institutions from partner countries can also be part of the consortia that deliver these programmes (though this is not obligatory) as Full Partners, which means they officially award degrees, or as Associated Partners, where they participate in the programme in some kind of capacity, but do not award the actual joint degree.
