The basic cost of the programme is estimated about 40 000 euros/student/year. However, these costs are highly subsidised for the selected students.
The student participation costs participation (tuition fees, full insurance coverage and any other mandatory costs related to student participation in the course) for the 2‑year EPOG+ Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degree are:
- 600 euros / year (tuition fees)
- 400 euros / year (insurance, except if a student can proove — with an official and explicit letter of his/her insurance — that he/she has already an insurance fulfilling the minimum requirements)
This participation concerns the students with a personal income below 15000 euros/year (expected scholarships or other personal income during the EPOG+ studies). Note that parent’s support or the use of personal savings are not considered as student’s personal income. These rules are based on the social policy the consortium wants to implement: even if the EPOG programme needs funds to operate, education is primarily considered as a common good that should not be commoditised. Students with a personal income higher than 15000 euros/year during the EPOG+ studies period might be subject to higher participation costs.
The specific rules for the 1-year EPOG programme are available on a specific page.
