The Europhotonics master has been selected by the European Agency in the framework of the Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degree (EMJMD) 2018 call (see selection results here). The partners of the new program are the former ones (AMU Marseille, KIT Karlsruhe, the Universities of Barcelona) plus two additional European Universities (Tampere-Finland, Vilnius-Lithuania). Five non-European Universities will also participate in the program (Shanghai Jiao-Tong-China, Rochester-USA, Gondar-Ethiopia, Sydney-Australia, UNAM-Mexico). Four editions will be funded by the European Commission until 2024. The first edition of the new program will start in September 2019.

Study in Marseille or Barcelona!

The KSOP Master students are offered the possibility to do the 3rd semester at Aix-Marseille University or at the Universities of Barcelona.


The agreements signed between the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), the Aix-Marseille University and the Universities of Barcelona for the local Masters in Photonics provide an equivalence of the semesters. In this context, for a KSOP student, the validation of the 3rd semester of the Master in Marseille or in Barcelona will be equivalent to a validation of the 3rd semester of the Master in Optics and Photonics at KSOP.


Scholarships available

For this mobility, the KSOP students can benefit from an Erasmus+ mobility scholarship (around 100€/month) or from a scholarship of the A*Midex foundation (800€/month).

In both cases the applications will open in May.
