Scholarships and tuition fees

 

Admission to EACH is open until Jan 11, 2021!

 

The programme offers scholarships funded by the European Commission.

Applicants from the programme countries (27 EU countries, Norway, Lichtenstein, Turkey, Iceland, Republic of North Macedonia, Serbia) 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 expected number of EU funded scholarships for the intake of 2021 will be 14 (11 partner country and 3 programme country scholarships). The admission committee has the right to increase the number of scholarships to be awarded during one intake by up to two (one for partner and one for programme), if needed.

The EU scholarships are the following:

  • Scholarships for partner country students are offered to applicants from partner countries  (according to citizenship) 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 (27 EU countries, Norway, Lichtenstein, Turkey, Iceland, Republic of North Macedonia, Serbia). Please note that the five-year reference period for this 12-month rule is calculated backward from our application submission deadline, which is January 11, 2021.
  • Scholarships for programme country students are offered to applicants who are citizens of or whose country of residence is (or has been for more than a total of 12 months over the last five years) one of the Erasmus+ programme countries (the countries are listed above).

The admission committee of the EACH programme will create a ranking of applicants, but the final decision of scholarship allocation lies with the EU Commission. All applicants are automatically considered for the above-listed scholarships – an additional application is not required. See the table below for details.

In addition, the EACH consortium usually offers tuition waiver scholarships.
These scholarships cover the tuition fee (excluding insurance). See below for more details. In addition, students who do not have the EU scholarship can apply for some other scholarships. Please also see the FAQ 15 in the Frequently asked Questions section for more information.

The number of tuition waiver scholarships for intake 2021/22 will be announced during the admission period.

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.

Tuition fees:

We charge from partner country students the fee of 9000 EUR per annum and from programme country students 4500 EUR per annum. The partner and programme country scholarships, as well as the tuition 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 according to their status as programme or partner country student.

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 to the first- and second-year universities;

3. Ongoing support service and counseling by the international student services by the first- and second-year universities;
