Erasmus Mundus was founded by the EU in 2004 for non-member countries. Senior students and researchers from different countries, including Ukraine have an opportunity to get EU scholarships to continue education or conduct scientific research in EU universities. Erasmus Mundus answers challenges facing the modern higher education system: training European citizens for living in a global multicultural society which is based on knowledge and education, upgrading the quality and appeal of higher education in Europe. These principles correspond to the EU Lisbon Strategy under which the governments of the partner countries are committed to making the European economy competitive and capable of dynamic development and the European higher education – affordable and of the highest quality in the world. The program also supports the Bologna process implementation, contributing to academic degrees recognition and development of university education internationalization.
