EMA Conducts Visa Experiences Survey to Enhance Student Support


The Erasmus Mundus Association (EMA) has launched a comprehensive survey to gather insights into the visa application experiences of Erasmus Mundus Joint Masters (EMJM) students and alums. This initiative, undertaken by EMA's Policy and Quality Assurance Unit (PQA), aims to improve the support and policies surrounding visa-related issues faced by students pursuing joint master's programs.


The anonymous survey seeks to gain valuable information about the challenges EMJM students and alums have encountered during the visa application process. It includes questions about basic demographics to better understand respondents' backgrounds and the specific visa-related hurdles they have faced. The survey scope extends beyond visa applications, encompassing residence permits and post-study visas.


Contrary to being a helpline for immediate assistance with visa issues, this survey is a vital data-gathering tool. EMA intends to use the collected data to work collaboratively with EMJMs to enhance their policies and programs, ensuring a smoother and more efficient experience for students dealing with visa-related matters.


The Erasmus Mundus Association encourages all eligible respondents to participate in this survey, as their input will be instrumental in shaping the future support system for EMJM students. By participating in the Visa Experiences Survey, EMJM students and alums have the chance to play a significant role in the ongoing efforts to enhance the quality and efficiency of Erasmus Mundus processes and support systems. This initiative underscores EMA's commitment to ensuring that international students pursuing joint master's programs have a positive and hassle-free experience during their academic journey.

Anyone with questions, comments, or concerns about this survey or who wishes to collaborate with the PQA team on related activities is encouraged to contact policy-quality@em-a.eu. Additionally, for individuals facing EMJM-related visa issues or those who know someone who is, EMA's Student and Alumni (S&A) unit can be reached at students.alumni@em-a.eu to provide guidance and assistance.
