Non-Scholarship Holder Students

Students who will not be selected for an Erasmus scholarship may still enter the programme as non-scholarship holder (NSH) students. For these students, the registration fees to the programme is about 4000 € per year, 8000 € for the two-year programme. These students will also pay for their travel, visas and installation and subsistence costs. But insurance costs will be covered by the programme. NSH students are encouraged to seek for opportunities for fundings and scholarship in their home country, through various types of programmes dedicated to study abroad. We are currently building a database of funding opportunities for students (see below), which will be regularly updated also thanks to student's contribution.
