Furthermore, the doctoral candidate must not be resident nor have carried out her/his main activity (studies, work, etc.) for more than a total of 12 months over the last five years in one of these countries.
The only exception to this rule applies to third-country candidates who have previously received an Erasmus Mundus masters scholarship.
