Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degree in Nuclear Physics (NucPhys) Scholarships.

NucPhys is a two-year Erasmus+: Erasmus Mundus Joint Masters Degree Course in Nuclear Physics.

The main objectives of the Master’s are initiation in scientific research in Nuclear Physics including theory, experiments, and applications.

The various specialities of the partner institutions result in a complete offer of pathways for the students.

Students of NucPhys will be trained in basic nuclear physics and technology, safety and radiation protection.

The Master addresses the integration of students in the industry and other institutions (i.e. hospitals), and seeks to bring young researchers into Euratom-supported research projects.

Therefore, special attention is devoted to the further implementation, in the nuclear and relevant medical and industrial sectors, of initiatives to attract new talent in the nuclear field and develop competences and expertise beyond the academic curricula.

The aim is to respond to the needs of the nuclear industry and the corresponding regulatory bodies. Also important are the so-called nuclear activities of proximity, which include medical applications, the relevant non-nuclear industrial applications and the transport of radioactive materials.

In line with the strategy for EU international cooperation in research and innovation (COM(2012)497), international cooperation is fundamental and is the base of this Master.

This will revive the interest of the young generation for careers in the nuclear sector (in particular, reactor safety, geological disposal, radiation protection).

The achievement of these objectives will help to create a new European way to deliver essential economic growth through innovation, in accordance with the concept of “KICs” (Knowledge and Innovation Communities) as fostered by the European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT), in a highly competitive field.

The best way to achieve these goals is by means of a European consortium specially designed to integrate the best expertise (needed to create an assembled, well-based and complete programme) of leading research/teaching institutions on Nuclear Physics within Europe.

This consortium is a necessary step forward, because none of the mentioned institutes can alone offer a complete study career that covers all aspects of this multi-faceted field.

Apart from the natural appeal of Europe for non-European students, the leading role of Europe in the field of Nuclear Physics will attract them to be trained in this field within the proposed EMJMD.

Full Master Degree in Nuclear Physics Scholarships

For the next cohort 20 Erasmus Mundus scholarships for NON EU and 8 for EU will be available.

A full scholarship for non EU students includes:The full tuition fees (9000€/year)A monthly allowance for living expenses of 1000€/monthInstallation fee: 1000€ (lump sum at arrival)Travel expenses (3000€/year – lump sum)A health insurance (value 500€/year)

A full scholarship for EU students includes :The full tuition fees (4000€/year)A monthly allowance for living expenses of 1000€/monthTravel costs : 1000€/yearA health insurance 500€/year

Consortium ScholarshipsThe consortium offers scholarships for EU and NON EU candidates applying for the course.

The number (3-4/intake) and amount of scholarships will be fixed according to the fund availability.It will be distributed according to the candidate CV’s quality and their motivation.A full scholarship is not given.

We prefer to give partial scholarships to several students instead of full ones to only a few.

The Consortium scholarship may include (one or two of the following, not all):

• Tuition fees (up to 9000€ / year, valid for 2 years).

• Free Health insurance.

• Travels: up to 500€.

• Monthly allocation for living and housing (200-300€/month).

Academic Scholarships

Academic Scholarships are granted to excellent applicants.

These scholarships will cover a part of tuition fees and about 500€ / month for EU students and 850€ / month for non EU students. Additional scholarships are available depending on the program country and other factors.

Deadline: 15th March.
