Apply Erasmus Mundus 2023 GLOCAL Scholarships for International Students

For the school year beginning in September 2022, applications for Erasmus Mundus GLOCAL Scholarships are now being accepted. Apply right away.

Global Markets, Local Creativities (GLOCAL Scholarships) is a two-year international master’s degree offered by a group of seven top-tier universities with a global reputation.

The initiative intends to investigate the processes through which local entities (clusters, cities, and regions) and local actors (entrepreneurs, businesses, and policymakers) produce local competitiveness in the context of a global market. This curriculum emphasizes the significance of the historical and social framework in which business strategies, public policy, and economic development occur. This two-year academic programme not only gives you the analytical tools you need to understand how the local and the global interact and complement each other, but it also gives you the chance to gain real-world experience through internships with businesses and public policy organizations.

Depending on the curriculum you select, you will study at three of the GLOCAL partner universities and attend eight to ten core courses, eight optional courses, and a combination of lectures and seminars. Additionally, the curriculum offers placements at internships and businesses.

A job in urban or public policy organizations, global enterprises, international consultancies, the cultural and creative industries, or other non-profit organizations is the perfect fit for extremely bright students with this degree. The process and experience of globalization from a place-based viewpoint, particularly as it relates to cities, creative industries, development, and local entrepreneurial cultures, will be explored by students from a range of interdisciplinary perspectives.

In all of its endeavors, the GLOCAL Scholarships programme is committed to promoting equality. We encourage applications from people of all backgrounds and work to foster an inclusive atmosphere devoid of prejudice and unfair treatment. The University of Glasgow’s Equality, Diversity, and Inclusion principles and policies, which are available here, are something we wholeheartedly support.
