The individual Student Agreement (PDF) will be signed by the student and the JPB Chair. The agreement stipulates the rights and duties of the parties, concerning the nature of the relationship between the student and the MER Consortium, academic matters, other MER Consortium activities (compulsory participation in joint activities, evaluation), and financial issues (scholarships, tuition fees, etc.).

The Agreement is completed by a learning agreement modelled on the Erasmus learning agreement and by a Code of Ethics. A summary of the rights, obligations and responsibilities for the student and the Consortium is also annexed to the Student Agreement. The general complaint procedure is clearly explained in the Student Agreement.
