Montpellier is a city in southern France. It is the capital of the Languedoc-Roussillon region, as well as the Hérault department. Montpellier is the 8th largest city of the country, and is also the fastest growing city in France over the past 25 years.[1] Located on the south coast of France on the Mediterranean Sea, it is the third-largest French city on the Mediterranean coast after Marseille and Nice.

Montpellier welcomes many students every year from France and from various countries accross the world, a true cosmopolitan town.

This is why we strongly recommend you to look for accomodation as soon as you have the final confirmation of your selection and participation in EDAMUS master course.

Student life is rich and exciting with cultural events taking place throughout the year, including theatre festivals, dance festivals, cinema festivals, music festivals, etc. It is also a town with great sport events, excelent athletes, international events and competitions.

ERASMUS MUNDUS students from all over the world have set up the EMA - Erasmus Mundus Students Alumni Association.

We strongly recommend you to visit their website and make the most of this network.

They have elaborated a "Student Handbook" to share their experience and help you go through many aspects of your involvement in an Erasmus Mundus programme, in their words :

'This Handbook is envisaged to assist you throughout the whole period of your
involvement with Erasmus Mundus Master programme: from the very beginning when
you want to find out more about Erasmus Mundus and apply for the chosen Erasmus
Mundus Master Course to the moment when you get ready to return home after successful
obtaining of Master degree.'
