Costs and Funding

Participation Costs

The EU distinguishes two categories of students: students from a Programme Country and students from a Partner Country.

Programme Country students are students originating from one of the 27 EU Member States, North Macedonia, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway, Serbia or Turkey.

Partner Country students are students from all other countries, unless they were residents or have carried out their main activity (studies, training or work) for more than a total of 12 months over the last five years in one or more Programme Countries. In the latter case, these students are also classified as Programme Country students.

For more details, please consult the Erasmus+ Frequently Asked Questions (p. 14 for more information on Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degrees – EMJMD). Applicants with multiple nationalities must choose which one to use for their application. This decision is finalised when the application is submitted and cannot be changed at a later date.

Currently, the participation cost for the whole duration (2 years) of the Global-MINDS programme is the following:

8 700 € for Programme Country students (from Erasmus+ programme countries).
17 400 € for Partner Country students (from Erasmus+ partner countries).

Living expenses (e.g., accommodation) and travel expenses are not covered by the participation costs. See the Budget Simulator Assistance page for help estimating these costs. For required travel see mobility path.
