The members of the Consortium engage themselves in helping students with incoming procedures such as finding housing and ensure that students will have access to language courses, libraries, canteens, study rooms and computer facilities (personal e-mail address). The main contact points outside the departments will be the respective International Offices. Partner institutions are used to host the Erasmus Mundus students and scholars. They are used to help non EU students with the heavier administrative procedures that they have to go through and the cultural adaptation that some of them need. Support is provided to students as soon as they are recruited. The Partner Universities commit themselves to help students with their visa procedure. Help-centres (help-desks) are available in all the Partner Universities.
