7. Tuition fees and scholarships

The tuition fees for the EMJM PHID Master Programme will be:

  • Tuition fees for European graduate students (Programme country students): € 2,250 per semester, € 9,000 for the full academic programme
  • Tuition fees for Third-country graduate student (Partner country students): € 4,500 per semester, € 18,000 for the full academic programme

The different tuition fees are connected to the University regulations, and the fact that they are partly financed by national taxes. The Consortium Committee may set up a scholarship and waiver policy. Fees may be revised for further editions of the Masters Programme.

Tuition fees have to be paid to the coordinating institution according to the calendar below or accept the deduction of that amount out of the Erasmus Mundus Scholarship according to the Student Agreement.

Self-financing students may also be offered the Erasmus Mundus Insurance coverage at their own cost.

Erasmus Mundus Scholarships

The EMJM PHID will propose best ranked students to be awarded with individual Erasmus Mundus scholarships according to the student selection criteria approved by the EACEA and the Erasmus Mundus programme guidelines. The number of scholarships will be defined on a yearly basis.

The concession of the scholarship will be subjected to the following limitations:

  • Exclusively full-time enrolment.
  • Not being awarded with other EU grants for the same joint course over the length of the course concerned.
  • No more than three of the students with the same nationality.

Two categories are established:  Partner Country students and Programme Country students.

Partner Country students

Students whose nationality is one of the Erasmus+ Partner Countries and who are not residents nor have carried out their main activity (studies, training or work) for more than a total of 12 months over the last five years in a Programme Country are considered as Partner Country students; The five-year reference period for this 12-month rule is calculated backwards as from the submission deadline (defined by the consortia) of applying for an EMJMD student scholarship.

Programme Country students

Students whose nationality is one of the Erasmus+ Programme Countries count as Programme Country students.

Please note that, as Turkey, the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia (FYROM), Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway entered the Erasmus+ Programme as “Programme Countries”, scholarship applicants who are nationals of these countries should be considered as Programme Country students.

Contribution to travel and installation costs

The place of residence should be verified on the basis of the provision of:

  • A residence certificate issued in accordance with the candidate’s municipality normal registration rules;
  • A certificate from the candidate’s place of work, study or training issued by the employer or institution in question.

Contribution to subsistence costs (for both programme and partner country scholarship holders)

  • € 1,400 per month for the entire duration of the EMJMD study programme (24 months maximum).
  • Minimum mobility requirements for all students: if a student has to study in his/her country of residence, he/she will need at least two other physical mobility periods of 30 ECTS each, one of them in a Member State or country associated to the Programme to be able to receive the full monthly allowances.

Scholarship application

Applicants to the EMJM PHID Master Programme may also apply for an Erasmus Mundus Scholarship. Students must indicate in the on-line application form if they would like to be considered for an Erasmus Mundus Category A or a Category B scholarship, and they should also indicate their eligibility for these scholarships. According to the European Commission’s rules, candidates are not allowed to apply to more than three (3) Erasmus Mundus Programmes during one admissions cycle.

EMJM PHID also accepts students on a self-financing basis who pay their tuition fees and cover living costs from private sources or other scholarships. The academic conditions for admissions are the same for all students regardless of sources of funding; therefore the general conditions of eligibility apply to self-financing students as well.

Please note that EMJM PHID is very competitive: only the highest ranked of the selected applicants will be offered an Erasmus Mundus scholarship. Other accepted applicants will be placed on the reserve list for Erasmus Mundus scholarships. Candidates are strongly encouraged to seek other sources of funding.

Applications will be considered solely on the basis of their academic merits, abilities and potential, regardless of gender, ethnic or national origin, age, disability, religion, sexual orientation or any other irrelevant distinction. However, when the basic considerations are equal, the consortium will orient the recruitment towards diversity in geographical cover and balance in gender representation. Moreover, selection rules will be subject to Erasmus Mundus requirements; therefore, a maximum of two candidates from the same country may be proposed to an Erasmus Mundus Scholarship.
