Erasmus Mundus Masters Scholarships in Theoretical Chemistry and Computational Modelling, 2014

If you have questions about this aid arises, please visit the official source and ask your questions directly to the center.

European Union is offering scholarships for master students in the field of Theoretical Chemistry. International students can apply for the scholarships. Erasmus Mundus scholarships are offered to perform Master studies in TCCM and will be available annually for Third Country (category A scholarships) and European students (category B scholarships). Both types of grants cover tuition fees of the awardees and category A grants include an insurance for the two years of the Master. Students will receive a monthly payment amounting, per year, to 6000 € for European students and 12000 € for Third Country students. 31st January 2014 is the application deadline.. Erasmus Mundus is a cooperation and mobility programme in the field of higher education that aims to enhance the quality of European higher education and to promote dialogue and understanding between people and cultures through cooperation with Third-Countries. In addition, it contributes to the development of human resources and the international cooperation capacity of Higher education institutions in Third Countries by increasing mobility between the European Union and these countries. In the first year (M1), 12 ECTS credits are devoted to a leveling course, 3 to the improvement of the student’s command of a European language and 30 to compulsory courses in Mathematics, Statistical Mechanics, Molecular Quantum Mechanics, Programming and Numerical Methods; Group Theory; Reaction Dynamics and Spectroscopy delivered locally in the official language chosen by the participating Institution. The remaining 15 ECTS credits will be devoted to knowledge acquisition in Advanced Chemical Physics, Thermodynamics, Spectroscopy, Chemical Dynamics, Solid State Chemistry or other subjects chosen freely after advice by the student’s supervisor. The second year (M2), has a marked international character, and includes teaching and research activities. 24 credits will be devoted to the acquisition of a solid background in advanced Theoretical chemistry and Computational Modelling subjects (Advanced Electronic Structure Theory; Molecular and Chemical Dynamics; Advanced Computational Techniques; Computer Modelling and Simulation; Condensed Matter Theory) and related applications in Nano Science and Technology, Models of Biological systems; Materials by design; Reactivity and Catalysis; Excited State; Atmosphere and Space processes. For this purpose a mandatory four-week Intensive course will be organized. Lectures of the Intensive course will be delivered by the best specialists of the consortium and experts taken from third countries. The remaining 36 credits will be devoted to research activity. Compulsorily, part of this research activity (the equivalent to 18 ECTS credits) will be carried out in a member Institution of the consortium in a different country..  The scholarships are available for pursuing master degree level.
