This blog was created as part of the Erasmus Mundus Crossways in Cultural Narratives Masters programme, which is the only one of the EU approved and funded Erasmus Mundus Masters programmes to specialise in traditional humanities with a modern languages background. The Crossways Consortium comprises 6 top-class European universities.

For further information, please check the programme's official website and the universities' websites on the Useful Links section on the left. If you wish to have a specific question answered, please click on Email here and submit your query.

Mundus students, here you will find regular posts regarding the universities of the consortium, tips, activities, events, pictures, etc. Apart from checking it regularly to keep yourself up to date, a good way to use the blog is through the search device. We already have a significant amount of information on some universities of the consortium, so if you want to find information on a specific city, type its name in the search field (top left). You will then see all posts related to that specific city (because each post title contains the city's name in it). You can also type "General" in order to find information concerning everybody.

Perpignan: Soccer on Sunday

End of semester, exams sat, essays (almost?) finished, moving out... Uff! Let's sweat the stress off!

No one is supposed to be a professional (especially a certain Brazilian!). The idea is to get together, exercise a bit and have some laughs!

When? Sunday, 1 June at 7pm
Where? The big parking lot "below" Canigou (on the way to the library)

General: Important! Surveys

Dear all,

Firstly, for the students in Perpignan, it is extremely important that the ones who have not yet completed the questionnaire about this semester's courses do so by the end of the month. They are available in Cheryl's office and are anonymous.

Secondly, it is also very important that all non-EU (both grantholders and self-paying) students complete the online survey regarding students’ plans and expectations after completing Erasmus Mundus Master Courses aby 15 June. It only takes 20 minutes.


The goal is to give a true picture of Mundus non-EU students plans and intentions in the context of enhancing attractiveness of European higher education on the one hand and global brain drain processes on the other. Only a wide respond from students and their wish to share their opinions, views, plans and hopes with us may guarantee the survey successful accomplishment.

This project is a continuation of the  project completed last year, which resulted with publication presenting Mundus students experience, described  on the basis of respondents’ opinion and comments  representing 29 EMMCs. The coordinators of these participating courses received the book Studying in the European Union - chance and challenge for international students, it was widely distributed in third countries and the online version of our findings is available at http://www.mundus.amu.edu.pl/. The EACEA acknowledged the value of our studies and  considered “recommendations in the book a valuable asset to improve the implementation of the Erasmus Mundus Programme and encourage the participation of third countries students in this Programme”.
