In 2014 the support structure of Erasmus Mundus was transferred into the European Commission’s new programme Erasmus+, in which Erasmus Mundus Masters Courses are supported under the name Joint Master Degree programmes (JMD). This change affects the scholarship scheme for IT4BI starting from student intake in September 2015. The application process and the admission requirements remain unchanged.
For more information about the Erasmus+ programme, in particular about eligibility conditions and scholarships, please refer to the Erasmus+ Programme Guide.
The Erasmus+ programme distinguishes students who are nationals or residents of Programme Countries and Partner countries. Programme countries students are:
Students of Partner Countries are all other students.
Students fulfilling the eligibility criteria for both categories – e.g. students with a double nationality – must select the category of their choice. As a result, they are entitled to apply only to one of the two categories of scholarship at a time.
For both categories, the following eligibility criteria for an Erasmus+ scholarship apply:
Selected students will have to sign a Student Agreement prior to the student's enrolment in the IT4BI programme. The template of the Student Agreement can be found here.
The Erasmus+ programme provides EU-funded scholarships to students who have been selected by the consortia. Two categories of scholarships are available.
The scholarship for students from Programme Countries comprises:
The scholarship for students from Partner Countries comprises:
Contribution to subsistence costs will neither be given to scholarship holders for the periods of the IT4BI programme (study, research, internship, or thesis preparation) spent in the country of residence of the student, nor to scholarship holders from a Partner Country for the periods of the IT4BI programme spent in any Partner Country exceeding three months.
The participation costs covering the tuition fees are directly taken by the consortium. The remainder of the scholarship will be allocated to selected students as follows:
The scholarship will be paid by bank transfer.
All scholarship holders will receive an insurance meeting the minimum insurance requirements of the Erasmus+ programme for JMDs.
Erasmus+ Master Degree Loans enable potential IT4BI students to gain access to loans to support their studies. The loans are up to 18,000 EUR for a 2-year Master such as IT4BI and can cover both living and tuition costs. More information is available on the website of the European Commission.
