Other funding possibilities

The number of Erasmus Mundus scholarships is limited and the scholarships are only allocated to the very best applicants in each student intake. Therefore, we strongly encourage students to look for other financing and scholarship possibilities.

Applicants must ensure that they have sufficient funds to support themselves financially throughout their entire study period in the SECCLO programme. International students who cannot show proof of sufficient funds for living expenses for their period of study will not be able to obtain a student visa or residence permit. You can read more about living costs from Practical information for the selected SECCLO students.

You can begin your search for other funding possibilities from the links below, but note that the list is not exhaustive and you should also look for country-specific options.

Please note also that the SECCLO consortium universities are not responsible for these scholarships, nor can provide more information. You should always check the details of any given funding option directly with the organisation providing the scholarship.
