Erasmus Mundus


Palacký University Olomouc is in the role of the head of the university in the implementation of the jointly implemented master's program GLOBAL DEVELOPMENT POLICY (GLODEP), the so-called "joint degree".

The program will provide students from all over the world with the opportunity to study at three European universities that are part of the GLODEP consortium, namely Palacký University Olomouc, Université Clermont Auvergne (France) and Università degli studi di Pavia (Italy). The fourth semester is then devoted to practice or research at partner institutions around the world.

Approximately 15 Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degree scholarships covering tuition, insurance and travel and living expenses have been prepared for students entering the next academic year. For the second time, Palacky University received financial support from the European Union for this program.
GLODEP is one of nine prestigious EU-funded Erasmus Mundus programs that will take place in the Czech Republic next academic year.

The application deadline for the next academic year is January 31, 2021 - for students applying for a scholarship and April 30, 2021 for self-payers.

GLODEP - Global Development Policy is a two-year program aimed at training experts in the field of international development. Graduates will find employment in public administration, in international organizations, in the non-profit sector or in business focused on development policies and practice.

The Department has enabled UP doctoral students from the Czech Republic to study for one year at one of the leading South African HEIs (the programme is also open to non-doctoral UP students). Students of partner institutions have been able to study for up to two years in master and doctoral International Development Studies programmes in South Africa. For more information about the project, go to Should you have any questions, please contact Martin Schlossarek.
