Home > About EMA > Structure & History > Student & Alumni Relations Unit

The Students and Alumni (S&A) Unit is the biggest unit of the Erasmus Mundus Association (EMA).  The Unit’s main goal is to foster relationships between students and alumni of Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degree programmes. We are trying to create an Erasmus Mundus experience for enriching academic and professional experience. 

The current director is Nikshan Paudel, who can be reached at

The S&A Unit consists of the Program Representatives Network.

Programme Representative Network (PRNet)

The Programme Representative Network (PRNet) comprises motivated and proactive volunteers passionate about making a difference in the EMJM experiences of their fellow students and alumni. Programme Representatives (PRs) are representatives of their EMJM course and the liaison among EMA, EMJM Students, and Coordinators. Currently, we have 113 PRs in the S&A unit, and we are always looking to expand our network.

Program Representatives Network's Current structure

PRNet volunteers have a flat hierarchy, where they are all responsible for organising activities for the effective functioning of the unit. Below are the contact details of the responsible PRNet volunteers.


The S&A Director is the official contact point for all EMJM coordinators and consortiums. The Director is also responsible for resolving issues with students and alumni as and when they arrive. ​Alumni, current or incoming EMJM students who may have an issue or problem (academic and non-academic) before, during, and after their EMJM studies can contact with their queries.

Please read the FAQs before sending an email.


If you have a time-sensitive issue that needs the European Commission's (EC) intervention, please make a complaint here.


If you are an EMJM coordinator/consortium interested in collaborating with EMA, please email
