1. What is the tuition fee for the WINTOUR programme?
Programme country students' tuition fee is 4500 EUR per year (9000 EUR for the two years). Partner country students' tuition fee is 9000 EUR per year (18000 EUR for the two years).
2. What is included/not included in the fees?
The fees include: registration in the three host universities (with academic resources and services of the three universities), local language courses, full insurance coverage (according to European Commission requirements), issuance of Diplomas and other administrative costs.
The fees do not include: living expenses, transportation costs to and within Europe, and fees or taxes to be paid in order to met documentation requirements at application and enrolment stage (e.g. sworn translations, attested copies, legalizations, or public notary/consulate services).
3. What are the implications of being a self-funded student?
Self-funded students are those that pursue the master without an Erasmus+ scholarship. Hence, these students are responsible of paying the fees and all costs derived from their participation in the master (e.g. accommodation, transportation, subsistence, etc.).
4. Are there any scholarships available for WINTOUR students?
Students can follow the WINTOUR programme as self-funded students or they can apply for one of the several Erasmus+ scholarships (EMJMD action) available. These scholarships are designed to cover some of the expenses students incur throughout the entire duration of the WINTOUR course, which is 2 years. We open call for two categories of EMJMD scholarships: Programme Country and Partner Country scholarships. Depending on your situation (nationality and/or place of residence) you can apply for one of the two categories available.
5. Which category of scholarship applies to me?
Students are entitled to apply to one of the two categories of scholarships at a time. We kindly recommend you to read carefully the general conditions and specific requirements (including list of countries in each category) to be met in order to choose the suitable scholarship for you: /apply/en_scholarships/
Please bear in the mind the following:
- Double nationality: students with double nationality (of a Programme or Partner country) must choose the nationality under which they submit their scholarship application.
- 12-month rule: Partner country scholarship applicants can not have been residents nor have carried out studies, training or work for more than a total of 12 months over the last 5 years in any Programme country (the 5-year residence period for this 12-months rule is calculated backwards as from the submission deadline of applying for the EMJMD student scholarship). If any of this circumstances happens, applicants should send their application in the Programme Country category.
6. Former EMJMD grantees or Erasmus Mundus Master/Doctoral Course grantees are allowed to apply for Erasmus+ scholarships offered by the WINTOUR programme?
The European Commission establishes that candidates that have already obtained an EMJMD scholarship or are former Erasmus Mundus Master/Doctoral Course scholarship are not eligible for an additional scholarship under the EMJMD action. Hence, if this is your case, you can not apply for Erasmus+ scholarships in the WINTOUR Programme. One thing you can do, however, is applying to the master as self-funded student (and/or trying to find other ways to finance your studies).
7. What is the number of Erasmus+ (EMJMD Action) scholarships available per intake? Can this amount change?
The WINTOUR Consortium opens call for up to 19 scholarships per intake (3 for Programme Country students and up to 16 for Partner country students). The number of scholarships offered in our master are determined by the agreement made with the European Commission, so there is little room for the WINTOUR Consortium for changing the number of scholarships.
8. Are there any other options of funding other than Erasmus + scholarships?
The Wintour Consortium continually strives to provide other funding options for self-funded students. Having negotiated one grant for our 2016-2018 self-funded intake, we are pleased to offer some alternative means of funding for students following the 2017-2019 course as self-funded students.
