Master in International Migration and Social Cohesion

Candidate profile

The MISOCO consortium is welcoming outstanding migration scholars who are interested in contributing to the MISOCO master programme and strengthening academic partnerships with the consortium.

Academics in the field of migration studies are hosted for a period of up to 12 weeks in one of the consortium’s institutions. During this period they are expected to teach or develop elements of the MISOCO course, supervise thesis projects of MISOCO students and/or engage in independent research or other activities aimed to enhance the quality of MISOCO. Interested academics are invited to elaborate on their proposed contribution to MISOCO in the application form.

Scholars are selected on their academic merit (e.g. publications, research projects) and what they can bring to the joint Master’s programme.

Erasmus Mundus Scholar Scholarships

Erasmus Mundus Scholar Mobility scholarships are awarded in two week units. Scholars need to spend a minimum of two weeks and a maximum of three months (12 weeks) at a MISOCO partner institute . It is not possible to have an uneven stay. The scholarship is €2400 per two weeks. This scholarship is to cover all travel, accommodation and living costs incurred by the scholar.

  • Non-EU scholars: Scholars from non-EU Higher Education Institutes may visit any European partner in the consortium for the activities listed above.
  • EU-EEA scholars: Only scholars from the European MISOCO partners University of Amsterdam, University of Deusto, University of Latvia, University of Osnabruck and University College Dublin are eligible for scholar mobility to the programme’s third-country partners.

The EU/non-EU status of the scholar is based on the country in which the Higher Education Institute is located, not the nationality of the scholar. For example, a scholar with the Turkish nationality but employed by a Dutch Higher Education Institute will be considered an EU-scholar. A scholar with the Dutch nationality but employed by a Turkish Higher Education Institute will be considered a non-EU Scholar.

  • EU: the 28 EU Member States, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Kosovo, Turkey, FYRoM or Norway.
  • Non-EU: all other countries. Switzerland and the Western Balkans region (i.e. Albania, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Montenegro and Serbia) are considered non-EU countries.
