The CLE Master Course selected for Erasmus + Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degrees program.
After seven successful years in the framework of the Erasmus Mundus program, the European Union has once again recognized the excellence of the CLE Master Course.
In October 2015, the CLE has been selected for Erasmus+ by the Education, Audiovisual and Culture Executive Agency under the Key Action 1 Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degrees.
The program aims to:
1. foster excellence, quality improvements, innovation, and internationalisation in higher education institutions (HEI);
2. increase the quality and the attractiveness of the European Higher Education Area and support the EU's external action in the higher education field, by offering full degree scholarships to the best Master students worldwide;
3. improve the level of competences and skills of Master graduates, and in particular the relevance of the Joint Masters for the labour market, through an increased involvement of employers.
Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degrees programs are integrated study programs delivered by consortia of organisations from Program and Partner Countries. Erasmus+ funds scholarships for students, as well as grants for academics or guest lecturers to teach or research in the Master degree program.

The five year grant includes a preparatory year (starting mid October 2015), followed by three student intakes from 2016 until 2020. During this time, 52 highly remunerated scholarships might be awarded to the best CLE students.
Due to participation in the Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degree program, the attractiveness of the CLE Master Course will be raised further to get the best students from all over the world. The Master Course improves the level of competences and skills of Master graduates and their employability thanks to the contribution of the associated partners.
