EMT network — membership

The programmes and universities were renewed in June 2014 following a strict selection procedure for applications by a committee of expertspdf(59 kB) Choose translations of the previous link  .

Further selection rounds will most likely be organised every 5 years.

EMT membership (or observer status) will take effect on the day of publication, lasting five years. We will monitor memberships and organise a mid-term review. The EMT Board will deal with potential cases where there is doubt about continued membership.


You can become a member if your programme:

  • is already in place in (and authorised by) an EU country
  • is an authorised programme run by a university in certain non-EU countries (prospective new member countries, countries taking part in the European Neighbourhood Policy (ENP) or the European Economic Area (EEA), Switzerland and Russia). Programmes from these countries will be granted observer status.
