JoinEU-SEE is funded by the Education, Audiovisual and Culture Executive Agency of the European Commission (EACEA) in the framework of the Erasmus Mundus 2009-2013 programme, which is a worldwide cooperation and mobility programme in the field of higher education. In accordance with the objectives of the Erasmus Mundus Action 2 programme, the JoinEU-SEE mobility scheme strives to contribute to the achievement of better understanding and mutual enrichment between the European Union and third countries in the field of higher education and society at large. The JoinEU-SEE activities not only offer scholarship grantees the opportunity to expand their academic competences, their language skills as well as social and intercultural competences, thus improving their employability in an ever faster changing society. The work done in the context of the JoinEU-SEE project will also help to consolidate the academic as well as the political, cultural and economic co-operation between the EU and Western Balkan countries and within the Western Balkans.  JoinEU-SEE supports mobility at all levels of higher education, including both mobility for students (undergraduate, master, doctoral and post-doctoral) and for staff (academic and administrative).


The JoinEU-SEE scholarship scheme is designed for:

  • students and staff members from Western Balkan countries wanting to study at an EU University. Eligible Balkan countries are Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Macedonia, Kosovo, Montenegro and Serbia  (click here for the details)
  • students and staff members from the EU member states wanting to study at a Western Balkan university (click here for the details)

The next call for applications opens on November 9th, 2012 (at 00:01h) and closes on February 1st, 2013 (at 23.59h). The call is open to applicants who want to start their mobility in autumn 2013. At student level there are no scholarships available for spring 2014. Only staff may start their mobility any time between summer 2013 and spring 2016. Applicants will be notified of the selection results by the end of May 2013 at the latest. Please note that exchange between two EU countries and within the Western Balkans is not possible.

  3. Hello! I’m a Master degree applicant, I’ve checked the Online Application Manual and have two questions:
    -What to put as a “student registration number” (page 7 of the Manual), since I’m no longer a student, I've obtained a university degree? Or should I just skip it?
    -Can languages for which one doesn’t have an official certificate be mentioned in the application or not? For example, I only need Spanish certificate and I have it, but I also know a little English, Serbian etc. but don’t have any certificate to prove it… so what should I do?
    Many thanks in advance for your answers!
    Best regards,

    1. Dear Sanja,

      according to your first question, you should use your "old" student registration number, which you obtained during your bachelor studies. Anyway, you might want to check your question with the organizers too, in this case write to
      About the language skills – sure that you can mention all your language abilities! Its always a plus:) You will use the grading scale to indicate your language skills, where you can mention up to four languages.

      Kind regards,
