The Erasmus Mundus External Cooperation Window (EM ECW) is a cooperation and mobility scheme in the area of higher education cooperation (see also: www.eacea.ec.europa.eu). The EM ECW objective is to achieve better understanding and mutual enrichment between the European Union and third countries cooperation in the field of higher education through promoting the exchange of persons, knowledge and skills at higher education level.

This will be achieved through the promotion of partnerships and institutional co-operation exchanges between European higher education institutions and third country institutions and a mobility scheme addressing student and academic exchanges. All partner universities, ACP as well as European, have considerable experience in external academic cooperation, including student and staff mobility. The number of available scholarships is 180. It is envisaged that the total number of student scholarships will be at least 144, while the number of academic scholarships will be a maximum of 36, making a total mobility flow of 180 (80%:20%). Out of these scholarships, approximately 55% will originate from Target group 1 while the rest is divided between Target group 2 and Target group 3 (35% and 10% respectively). No more than 10% of the students may have the same ACP nationality. 

Target group 2:

Nationals of the third-countries concerned by the geographical lot (Africa, Caribbean, Pacific), registered in a higher education institution of these countries not included in the partnership or having obtained in an institution of these countries a university degree or equivalent. This includes the possibility of providing mobility opportunities to third-country nationals working in public administration, public and private enterprises.

Target group 3:

Nationals of the third-countries concerned by the geographical lot (Africa, Caribbean, Pacific) who are in particularly vulnerable situations. It may cover mobility for students holding the nationality of one of the third-countries concerned and:

1.

having a refugee status or asylum beneficiaries (international or according to the national legislation of one of the European recipient countries) or

2.

it can be proved they have been the object of unjustified expulsion from university on racial, ethnic, religious, political, gender or sexual inclination or

3.
