Hello fellow Erasmus Mundus alumni, current and future EM students, and everyone surfing the net for scholarships in Europe!

Welcome to the Pinoy Erasmus Mundus blog site!!! Although I think it should be Ms. Thelma Gecolea of the Delegation of the European Commission to the Philippines (Hi Tita Thelms!!) welcoming us in this blog, she is currently busy with schemes to make sure that more Filipinos will get EM scholarships this year (Yey!!!!).

We are currently organizing an informal working group to create the EM Alumni – Philippine Chapter. As our first undertaking, we have created this blog as an interactive venue to:

  1. promote Erasmus Mundus in the Philippines;
  2. assist current EM students in their studies (and everything else outside studies of course);
  3. assist potential EM students with their applications and queries; and
  4. discuss anything and everything about living and studying in Europe.

Our immediate and realistic goal for this year is for our blog to surpass the popularity of friendster, facebook and even at least in the Philippine network. (Haha!)

Enough of this blah blah blah! We want your stories, pictures, blogs, ideas, suggestions, questions, and answers about student life in Europe.

Erasmus Mundus rocks!
