Tuition fees and scholarships

The tuition fees for the EMMPHID Master Programme will be:

  • Tuition fees for European graduate students (Category B students): € 4,000 per semester, € 8,000 for the full academic programme
  • Tuition fees for Third-country graduate student (Category A students): € 6,000 per semester, € 12,000 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.

Amount Date of payment
50% of the total tuition fees At enrolment
50% of the total tuition fees Before 31st December

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

Erasmus Mundus Scholarships

The EMMPHID 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 scholarships will amount to:

Category A scholarships Category B scholarships
Contribution to travel, installation, visa related costs and any other type of costs € 4.000 € 3.000 (only in case of a mobility period to a third country)
Contribution to the participation costs (including insurance coverage) € 4.000 / semester € 2.000 / semester
Monthly allowance € 1.000 / month € 500 / month

According to the Erasmus Programme regulations, students awarded with an Erasmus Mundus Scholarship will be granted a fee waiver for the amount of the tuition fees not covered by the EU contribution to the participation costs.

According to the Erasmus Programme regulations applicants can only apply to one of the categories:

- Category A scholarships can be awarded to third country masters students selected by EMMPHID consortium who come from a country other than a European Country and who are no residents nor have carried out their main activity (studies, training and work) for more than a total of 12 months over the last five years in these countries.

- Category B scholarships can be awarded to European masters students selected by EMMPHID consortium as well as to any masters students selected by EMMPHID consortia who do not fulfil the Category A criteria.

Students fulfilling the eligibility criteria for both Category A and B, such as students with double nationality, must select the Category of their choice. They are, therefore, entitled to apply only to one of the two categories of scholarship at time.

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 two of the students with the same nationality.

Scholarship application

Applicants to the EMMPHID 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.

EMMPHID 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 EMMPHID 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.
