90% of current Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Programmes are expected to commence in the current semester.  There are 129 such programmes ongoing at the moment with Irish involvement in 7 courses.  The finding is contained in a report entitled “Erasmus Mundus Programme Implementation in the Context of COVID-19”.


The survey, undertaken by the Education, Audiovisual and Culture Executive Agency on behalf of the European Commission, concluded:

“The COVID-19 pandemic undoubtedly has temporary consequences on the Erasmus Mundus projects. However, it is reassuring to see that the consortium partners jointly put in place mitigating measures and that they do not anticipate a major negative impact on the implementation of their projects and the achievements of their objectives. Without denying the difficulties, they are confident about their capacity to reach their quantitative objectives by the end of their projects.”

The report aims to support Erasmus Mundus consortia, analyse the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the study programmes (experiences, problems encountered, solutions and good practices implemented) and to obtain information on the scenarios envisaged by consortia for the academic year 2020/2021.
