Erasmus Mundus GEM MSc Scholarships in Geo-information Science and Earth Observation for Environmental Modelling and Management (GEM)


Five renowned European institutes offer a unique Erasmus Mundus joint European Master of Science (MSc) Course in Geo-information Science and Earth Observation for Environmental Modelling and Management (GEM), which starts annually in September.

The course has a duration of 22 months and will be taught by world class faculties in five countries: Iceland, UK, Sweden, Poland and The Netherlands. While spending time in at least two of the five countries and studying in multi-cultural environment students will gain valuable insight into the academic, social and cultural diversity of northern and central Europe. On graduation they will be offered a multiple MSc degree from the consortium universities.

The course will start with a foundation year. Depending on their background and preference students will start their studies either in The Netherlands (Twente University, faculty ITC) or in Sweden (Lund University). The overall content of this foundation year is similar at both universities but at ITC focus is more on the interaction of society and technology related to environmental modelling and management while in Lund the students receive more training in quantitative biophysical modelling.

After the foundation year students continue with MSc research, including fieldwork, on a topic of their choice at one of the other 4 universities.

This top-quality Master’s course is supported by the prestigious EU Erasmus Mundus programme and is open to full-fee paying students from the EU and the rest of the world.

The admission requirements for this course are as follows:

- Applicants should have a first or upper second class (2.1) BSc honours degree, or equivalent, from a recognised university in a discipline related to the course, preferably combined with work experience in a relevant field.

- Proficiency in the English language is a prerequisite

Paper-based TOEFL: 580
