IMBRSea Participation Costs

IMBRSea Participation Cost

The IMBRSea Consortium have made an agreement to organise the master programme in a way that fees for students that participate on a self-funding basis are kept as low as possible. A reduction of €1000 euro per student per year to the actual participation costs was applied resulting in the following fees:

  • €3500 per year for European citizens
  • €4500 per year for non-European citizens

The annual tuition fees cover:

  • Enrolment and tuition costs at universities of study
  • Joint Summer School costs (2 weeks): food, accommodation
  • Annual Symposium costs (1 week): food, accommodation

Scholarships are available for both EU and non-EU students: more info

Payment of Fees

If your application is successful you will be invoiced for the first year of the programme. Once payment has been received, your place will be secured at your selected university of study. If your payment is not received by the payment deadline, IMBRSea cannot guarantee you a place at your university of choice. The second year of the programme must be paid by the beginning of the second academic year.   

Living & Travel Costs

Students finance their own accommodation, insurances, living and travel costs while undertaking the IMBRSea programme.

Note that additional regular Erasmus+ mobility grants may be received for mobility from the participating universities (click here fore more information). Note that regulations on these grants are not set by the IMBRSea consortium.

Required Funds for Non-European Students

In Europe, a student must have sufficient means of subsistence to cover their living costs, healthcare, study and repatriation costs. The minimum amount which a student must have to cover their costs is fixed and indexed each year. Non-European students will usually need to prove that they have the minimum amount of funds required to cover their costs in order to obtain a long-term visa or residence permit. Note that for students receiving an Erasmus Mundus scholarship, the scholarship covers these minimum funds. Click here for more information.

Frequently asked questions: 

Can I pay the participation fee in installments?

As a self-funded student you will be able to pay the fee of the first year in two installments. After completion of the first academic year you will be invited to pay the fee for the second year. This second year fee should be paid in one installment.

When do I pay the participation fee?

After being accepted to the programme, you will receive the request to pay the first part of the participation fee of year 1 of 1000 euro. Only after payment of this part your place in IMBRSea at the starting university will be secured. The second part of the participation fee should be paid by 1 August of the year in which you start the programme.

The fee for the second academic year should be paid prior to 1 August again, once you have succesfully completed your first year.
