Fees and Support
The consortium charges a tuition fee of €4,000 per-year to nationals from Erasmus+ programme countries (for a list please check here) and €5,500 per-year to all other nationals. Given the comparatively high tuition fees charged in the United Kingdom, applicants should be aware that specific regulations do apply for self-paying students at the London School of Economics.
The tuition fee covers the participation of all classes offered within the European Master in Global Studies and includes also support in administrative and organizational issues by a local coordinator. However students will need to cover for the travel costs to winter and summer school on their own.
Erasmus Mundus Grants
Under Action 1 of Erasmus Mundus, the EU Commission offers scholarships to selected highly qualified students from Erasmus+ partner countries. This scholarship covers all tuition fees. The scholarships currently include a single travel allowance between €5,000 and 7,000 (depending on the country of origin) and a living allowance of €1,000 per month. The scholarship also includes basic medical coverage.
All applications arriving by the deadline at the office in Leipzig are automatically taken into consideration for the Erasmus Mundus scholarship.
The EU will provide a maximum of 8 Erasmus Mundus scholarships per intake for the years 2015, 2016 and 2017.
According to the EU "Partner Country students are students who are not residents nor have carried out their main activity (studies, training or work) for more than a total of 12 months over the last 5 years in an Erasmus+ Programme Country. The 5-year reference period for this 12-month rule is calculated as from the submission deadline", that is in the case of the Global Studies Programme March 30th).
