Lotus is an Erasmus Mundus Action Two Partnership (EMA2) of European and South-East Asian Higher Education Institutions (HEI) and Associations aiming at fostering mutual enrichment and better understanding between the EU and South-East Asia (China, Vietnam, Cambodia, Myanmar, Indonesia, Thailand), through the exchange of persons, knowledge and skills at higher education level and to co-operate in the following program activities:
  • Mobility of undergraduate and graduate students
  • Mobility of PhD students
  • Post-doc mobility
  • Academic and administrative staff mobility
The types of mobility to be funded are:
  • For students: undergraduate, master, doctorate and post-doctorate mobility opportunities
  • For academic staff: exchanges for the purposes of teaching, practical training and research
This project is to give South-East Asian students and staff the possibility to go to a European University to improve, enrich,  learn, experience, …. their own knowledge and skills.  Please bear in mind that the scholarships are only granted to South-East Asian students and staff coming to Europe.
To enable students to benefit in a linguistic, cultural and educational way from the experience of pursuing academic studies in another country, all students should have a thorough command of English (this can only be proven by means of internationally recognized documents, p.e. IELTS certificate, TOEFL, First Certificate of Cambridge, an English diploma, a Degree obtained in English). Please note, however, that this also depends on the language requirements of the host universities within the Lotus project.
