The DOC NOMADS Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degree (EMJMD) in Documentary Filmmaking is a two-year, full time, international graduate program (120 ECTS) delivered by a consortium of three prominent European universities across three countries: Portugal, Hungary and Belgium.
DocNomads is the first joint master in Europe in the field of FILM that was granted the right to use the Erasmus Mundus brand name and the grant support of the European Commission for the first five editions. This backing was granted again for the course editions in the period of 2017-2022.
About twenty-four students from all around the world follow a mobility track from Lisbon to Brussels, via Budapest. In doing so, students are immersed within different cultural environments, learning how to make use of their abilities outside their usual social contexts.
As an Erasmus Mundus Program, DOC NOMADS offers two-year scholarships to some of the selected European and non-European students. This Master Course is sponsored and supervised by the EACEA – Education, Audiovisual and Culture Executive Agency of the European Commission.
DOC NOMADS Erasmus Mundus Masters Course is aimed to students from all over the world with a Bachelor’s degree (BA) in Film Studies, in Arts or in Media Communication studies.
Other degrees (of at least EQF Level 6) may be accepted from applicants with a convincing artistic portfolio.
