Payment of Fees

Upon admission to the programme, self-sponsored students will receive an invoice for the first year of the programme. Once the payment is received, your place is secured at your selected university for semester 1. If your payment is not received by the payment deadline (August 1st), IMBRSea cannot guarantee you a place at your university of choice.
Tuition fees for the second year must be paid before the start of the second academic year.

Living & Travel Costs

All students finance their own accommodation, insurances, living and travel costs while undertaking the IMBRSea programme. These costs can be (partially) covered by a scholarship you may hold.

The cost of living differs from country to country. This tool might provide you an indication of the costs.

Visa fees

Visa fees might apply, depending on your nationality and mobility.

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.
