Scholarships and tuition fees

 

We are glad to announce that the EACH programme will continue as an Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degree programme, offering EU funded scholarships and tuition waiver scholarships for students. For more information about the scholarships, please see the information below.


 

Funded by the European Commission, the programme offers scholarships to students

Applicants from the programme countries (28 EU countries, Norway, Lichtenstein, Turkey, Iceland, Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia) as well as from the partner countries (all other countries) can apply for Erasmus+ scholarships. The number of partner and programme country scholarships is limited, and will be allocated to the best ranked students. The number of EU funded scholarships for the 2018 intake will be 13. The EU scholarships are the following:

  • Scholarships for partner country students are offered to applicants from partner countries and can be awarded to students selected by the EACH consortium who are not residents nor have carried out their main activity (studies, work, etc.) for more than a total of 12 months over the last five years in the Erasmus+ programme countries. Please note that the five-year reference period for this 12-month rule is calculated backwards from our application submission deadline, which is January 11, 2018.

  • Scholarships for programme country students are offered to applicants whose country of residence is one of  the Erasmus + programme countries.  

The admission’s committee of the EACH programme will create a ranking of applicants, but the  final decision of scholarship allocation lies with the EU Commission.

In addition the EACH consortium offers a number of tuition waiver scholarships. These scholarships cover the tuition fee. The number of scholarships for the 2018 intake will be up to 10. All applicants are automatically considered for the above listed scholarships – an application is not required. In addition, students who have the tuition waiver scholarship can apply for the Estonian Government scholarship.

 General rules for partner and programme country scholarships:

  • According to the rules of the EU Erasmus+ programme at least 75% of the scholarships funded by the EU will be awarded to students from partner countries and up to 25% of the scholarships funded by the EU will be awarded to students from programme countries. The tuition waiver scholarships are independent of the EU Erasmus+ programme.
  • Students applying for a partner or programme country scholarship  are not allowed to submit a scholarship application to more than three EU funded consortia.
  • Students who have already obtained an Erasmus Mundus Master Course scholarship are not eligible to apply for an additional scholarship under Erasmus + programme  Joint Master Degree (JMD) action.
  • Students benefiting from a partner or programme country scholarship cannot benefit from another EU grant while pursuing their studies in an Erasmus+ JMD.

Tuition fees:

We charge from partner country students the fee of 9000 EUR per annum and from a programme country student 4500 EUR per annum. The partner and programme country scholarships as well as the tuition fee waiver scholarships cover the tuition fee. If the number of qualifying applicants is larger than the number of available scholarships,  the consortium offers some fee-based study places.  Students wishing to be enrolled in those study places will have to pay the tuition fee.

The tuition fee covers: 1. Tuition throughout the programme and essential study materials (including the language courses and winter school); 2. Orientation course and reception upon arrival; 3. Ongoing support service and counselling by the international student services; 4. Tutors/student assistant who help with everyday issues like settling in the dormitory, registering for classes, getting medical help, etc.); 5. Health insurance (not covered in the case of tuition waiver scholarships). The tuition fee does not cover accommodation in the dormitory,  meals, travel costs required for the mobilities, living expenses or other costs.
