Sweden: Erasmus Mundus
Erasmus Mundus in Sweden
The EU's Erasmus Mundus project makes Europe’s educational opportunities more accessible to the rest of the world by granting scholarships to non-European students attending select programmes. Some of these eligible programmes involve Swedish universities, and are listed here.
(More information about Erasmus Mundus in general can be found here. Scholarship applications are made directly to the institution hosting the programme; the Swedish Institute does not administer them. Please check scholarship eligibility rules before applying.)
