The Handbook is written based on previous experience of former Erasmus Mundus students, interviews with Courses coordinators and results obtained during the Graduate Impact Surveys. The Student Handbook is elaborated for all Erasmus Mundus students and, therefore does

Certainly, this Handbook cannot answer all possible questions; however it is a handy information tool during your Master study experience, since it contains practical tips and
additional materials to help you make your Erasmus Mundus more successful.
With any feedback comments and suggestions, please feel free to contact us at service@em-a.eu as the Student Handbook is to be yearly updated.

Best wishes,
