During the 6 academic years that the programme has been running, Grants have been provided to MER students by the Consortium (e.g., approx 200.000 € per year in 2010-2011 and 2011-2012), in addition to the regular Fellowships that students can apply for in their corresponding education institutions (5 yr report).

Overall Cost Estimate


A gross estimate of the budget needed to complete the MER MSc course (2 years) is provided together with the potential contribution resulting from common funding opportunities. It is only valuable for orientation purposes.

Students without a Erasmus Mundus student scholarship are eligible to be awarded a MCG waiver so that the full registration for the two academic years could be cut to 6000 €, provided pathway A2 is followed.

The MER Secretariat can assist you in getting funding but it cannot be ensured that you will be successful.

The MER JPB strongly recommends you to consider the expected costs of the programme (PDF) in a realistic way before you decide to enroll. The MER Consortium cannot assume any responsibility if a student must leave the MER MSc programme before its conclusion due to economical reasons.
