The Personal Training Plan (PTP) aims to define the student mobility scheme with regard to advanced courses and training in the research field the student is interested in for his Master Thesis. At the end of the first semester, the student chooses the subspecialty he wants to follow at each partner university(ies) for the second year of master. He has up to the end of first year / start of third semester to choose the subject of his Master Thesis.
The Personal Training Plan's goal is to tailor an interdisciplinary education and training in the research field the student is interested in and to prepare his thesis work for the best.

The PTP has to meet the mobility criteria set by the Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degrees (EMJMD) Program:
Nota Bene 1: Laval University (Québec) offers a 1-year study/research program during second year. Only Program country students are allowed to take optional courses in Laval, which implies that they also have to undertake their research project in Laval University, provided they went through Amsterdam during semester 1 and Bordeaux during semester 2.
Since scholarship holders from a Partner Country are not allowed to spend more than three months (15 ECTS) in any Partner country, this mobility cannot be offered to them.
Nota Bene 2: Students who spent the first year in Göttingen have to validate their research project in Göttingen during Semester 4 (the research project can be conducted in Göttingen or elsewhere) to validate Göttingen's degree.
Nota bene 3: For Industrial placement (Master thesis), a student is allowed to spend Semester 4 (30 ECTS) at an industrial Associated Member, provided industrial placement is offered. However, the student has to register at one Full Partner University that is responsible for the master thesis validation and ECTS delivery (affiliated university). An agreement must be signed between the company and the partner university where the student is registered.
Neurasmus has been chosen as a Success Story & Good Practice Example from the 14 best projects out of 377 Erasmus Mundus projects.
