Masters in Resources Engineering Scholarships
EMerald Master Course in Resources Engineering. EMerald is a two-year Master’s programme (120 ECTS) organised by four European Universities – University of Liège (ULiège), University of Lorraine (UL), Luleå University of Technology (LTU) and Technische Universität Bergakademie Freiberg (TUBAF).
The programme is designed to focus on the following major aspects of Resources Engineering, Characterisation, Processing, Modelling and Management.
The programme is organised into four semesters (30 ECTS per semester). The first semester is in Liège, the second semester in Nancy, the third semester in Luleå or TUBAF and the fourth semester is in one of the four partner Universities.
The EMerald Master Programme has been designed to find the right balance between knowledge of resources (geology, landfills, urban mines, reserve characterisation and modelling) and process engineering techniques (comminution, sorting, preconcentration, extractive metallurgy and waste disposal).

- Contribution to the participation costs EUR 4,500 per year per programme country scholarship holder.EUR 9,000 per year per Partner Country scholarship holder.

- Partner Country students. The five-year reference period for this 12-month rule is calculated backwards as from the submission deadline (defined by the consortium) of applying for an EMJMD student scholarship.
- Students whose nationality is one of the Erasmus+ programme countries count as Programme Country students.
- Students with a Partner Country nationality who do not fulfil the Partner Country criteria defined above (12-month rule) count as Programme Country students.
- Students with a double nationality (of a Partner and of a Programme Country) must specify the nationality under which they submit their scholarship application.II. Contribution to travel and installation costs
The contribution to travel and installation costs takes into account ONLY the residence of the scholarship holder (regardless of the category under which the student has been enrolled).
EUR 1,000 per year per scholarship holder resident of a Programme Country for travel costs
EUR 2,000 per year for travel costs + EUR 1,000 for installation costs for scholarship holders resident of a Partner Country which is situated less than 4,000 km from the coordinating institution
EUR 3,000 per year for travel costs + EUR 1,000 for installation costs for scholarship holders resident in a Partner Country which is situated 4,000 km or more from the coordinating institution.
III. Contribution to subsistence costs
There is a contribution to subsistence costs (for both Programme and Partner Country scholarship holders) of EUR 1,000 per month for the entire duration of the EMJMD study programme (24 months maximum).
A contribution to subsistence costs may not be given to:
- Scholarship holders for the EMJMD periods (study /research /placement /thesis preparation) spent in their country of residence.
- Partner Country scholarship holders for the EMJMD periods exceeding three months (indicatively the equivalent of 15 ECTS) spent in any Partner Country.
