Guidance notes

Please read carefully the guidance notes and recommendations provided in the On-line Application Form - Guidance Notes (PDF) document. Additional and more detailed information on the Study Programme is also available online (Module Description Book).

Data protection

Information collected from applicants will be used only for the purposes for which it was collected and to support the University’s central activities (mainly teaching and research).

It also supports procedures which underpin activities such as admission, enrolment, accommodation, examinations, alumni activities and helps us to compile records and statistics.

The University may be called upon to co-operate with the police in crime investigations and with certain other public authorities. In such circumstances, personal data may be released. You should be aware that information about your enrolment, attendance and progress at the University may be passed to the Immigration and Nationality Directorate of the Home Office for the purposes of immigration.

Our commitment to improvement

The partner Universities continually strives to improve the quality of the student experience and the effectiveness of their administrative processes. We welcome feedback about your experience as an applicant. Please let us know your views.

Universities are committed to providing a high quality and fair admissions procedure. However, we recognise that there may be occasions when applicants feel that they have cause for complaint. A complaints procedure is available. Please contact us for further details.

Financial responsibility of students on the programme

Prior to participating in the Programme, students should have adequate funds to cover:

  • study at each of the Parties including relevant financial documents required for visa purposes;
  • tuition, academic and other fees payable in respect of participation in the Programme and membership of a Party;
  • medical/health insurance (check insurance coverage provided by the MER Consortium);
  • travel to and from the student’s home country to the other Parties as required by the Programme;
  • personal and living expenses, including accommodation and food; and
  • any other debts incurred by the student or his or her dependants for the duration of his or her study abroad.

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.
