Pre-registration fee for selected students
MISOCO student candidates are to pay a pre-registration fee, due on June 1,
which is returned (by bank transfer) after students have signed their MISOCO
student contract with the Consortium.
The pre-registration fee is established at €250. Failure to pay the selection fee by June 1, means that the student's participation in the MISOCO programme is cancelled. If a student drops out of the programme of their own accord before signing the student contract the pre-registration fee will not be returned.
MISOCO will not be offering scholarships under the new Erasmus +: Joint Master Degrees programme.
Other foreign scholarships and loans are available for international students to fund their education. Please refer to the link below for more information.

Am I an Erasmus Mundus Category-A or Category-B Student?
Note that this Category A and B breakdown only applies to Erasmus Mundus Scholarship holders.
Category B students are nationals from the 28 EU Member States, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway, Turkey and the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia (FYROM).
Category A students are from any other country, provided they are not currently residents of these eligible countries (above), nor have carried out their main activity (studies, work, etc.) for more than a total of 12 months over the last five years in one of these countries.
The five-year reference period for this 12-month rule is calculated backwards as from the submission deadline for Category A applications by the EM consortia to the Agency. This deadline is currently set for 28 February (i.e. 3 months AFTER the application deadline for individual students).
Western Balkans region (i.e. Albania, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Montenegro, Serbia and Kosovo) are considered Category-A countries.
Dual or mutiple nationality
Note that the nationality you use in your application decides your Category A or B status and the height of your tuition fee. You cannot change your nationality after application to qualify for a lower tuition fee rate.
