Financial aspects

1)    What kind of financial aid is available for the 2018-2020 cohort?
Since Mundus MAPP won an Erasmus Mundus Master Joint Degree (EMJMD) Program grant for the third time it will be able to offer EMJMD scholarships which are co-funded by the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Union for three cohorts of students joining the program from September 2018. At the same time the Consortium also offers institutional scholarships for the 2018-2020 cohort.
Candidates interested in being considered for financial aid must submit their application by January 15, 2018. For more information on the available financial aid options click here.

2)    How much is the tuition fee? How do I pay it?
The tuition fees are 11,000 EUR/academic year, therefore 22,000 EUR in total for the two years. Tuition is paid in two instalments per year and candidates are instructed on how to make a payment to the Mundus MAPP consortium in the letter of acceptance they receive in case they are offered a place in the program. The first installment is due mid-August prior to the first academic year.

3)    Is US federal student loan available for US students to undertake their studies in Mundus MAPP?
US federal student loans are available for the academic years which students spend at CEU or at the University of York.
The Sallie Mae Loan is available for US students through ISS and IBEI.

6)    Can you suggest alternative sources of funding?
