    Unfortunately, the deadlines for Erasmus Mundus scholarship applications cannot be extended.
  • How many Erasmus Mundus scholarships does the COASTHazar Erasmus Mundus programme offer?
    On average, the COASTHazar Erasmus Mundus programme provides between 20 full scholarships and up to 5 reduced tuition fee scholarships every year.
  • Must I complete English proficiency tests at the time of application, or can I take the test after my application has been reviewed or I have been admitted to the program?
    You have the option to upload your application documents conditionally, and the English proficiency test can be submitted at a later stage, provided that it meets the deadline requirements. Please refer to the Application section on the website for more details.
  • I am not a native English speaker from one of the countries listed under the exemption list for language certificates, but I have undergone several years of education in English. Do I still need to take and submit TOEFL or IELTS English proficiency test results?
    Yes, you are still required to take the English proficiency test if your country is not included in the exemption list. The only exception is if you completed your BSc degree in a native English-speaking country. In such cases, you should upload a statement from the university where you obtained your bachelor's degree in place of the English test results in your online application.
  • I have not yet completed my BSc degree. Can I apply?
    If you haven't yet obtained your first higher education degree at the time of application, you can still apply. However, you must be enrolled in the final year of your studies at the time of application, with at least 120 EC of the program successfully completed by then. Your degree must be obtained before August 15, and the necessary documents confirming this must be included in your application before the programme starts. Your transcript of records should detail all completed and currently enrolled courses, along with a statement indicating the expected date of diploma attainment. A valid (definitive or temporary) bachelor's diploma must be provided no later than August 15. Failure to provide the official diploma after this date, if selected for a scholarship, will result in the withdrawal of the scholarship offer.
  • I have completed my studies but don't have a transcript of records (yet). What should I do?
    Your application cannot be considered valid and will not be accepted without a complete transcript of records, which must include all grades obtained, including the average final grade.
  • Can I submit my documents in a language other than English?
    All official application documents, such as BSc diplomas, transcripts of records, certificates, etc., must be submitted in English. Translations should be completed by a sworn translator. (This requirement does not apply to passports.) If you are unable to arrange for the translation of your documents before the application deadline, you may submit unofficial English translations temporarily. However, if you are selected for a scholarship, you will be required to upload all official documents translated by a certified (sworn) translator.
  • To who should motivation and recommendation letters be addressed to?
    Motivation and recommendation letters can be addressed to the Programme Coordinator of the programme or simply "To whom it may concern".
  • When should I anticipate hearing back about the status of my application?
    Applicants for Full Erasmus Mundus and reduced tuition fee Erasmus Mundus scholarships can expect notification of their application outcome during the third week of April 2024. Self-paying applicants will receive notification of their application outcome within approximately four weeks after the application deadline (by May 15, 2024).
  • What are the expenses associated with the program for students who are not receiving an Erasmus scholarship?
    Self-funded students, as well as those funded by external entities such as employers, government agencies, or other scholarship providers, are required to pay a full tuition fee of €18,000 (excluding VAT) for the entire program duration. Additional expenses for visas, travel, living, and accommodation during the 24-month period are not covered by the full tuition fee. Students must provide confirmation of available funding for these additional costs, supported by bank statements.
  • When is the payment deadline if I choose to finance the program through alternative means?
    All payments should be made to IHE Delft. The payment deadline is June 1 of the programme’s starting year. However, due to potentially lengthy visa procedures, it is strongly recommended to submit your financial confirmation well in advance of this date. For applicants from countries where a visa is not required, the payment deadline is July 31, 2024.
  • Am I allowed to apply for more than one Erasmus Mundus programme and scholarship?
    Yes, you are allowed to apply to multiple Erasmus Mundus programmes and scholarships. However, it is advisable to focus your applications on the programme(s) where you believe you have the highest chance of being selected.
  • When does the programme officially begin?
    The 2-years programme starts in Santander, Spain, during the first week of September, with a welcoming week. It is advisable to arrive a few days earlier for registration and orientation. The academic calendar can be found on the website for further details.
  • Can the recommendation letters be sent in anonymously?
    Yes, if preferred by the referee(s), recommendation letters can be sent anonymously to the email address: erasmusregistration-ch@un-ihe.org. In this case, a letter with a brief statement indicating this preference can be submitted instead of the recommendation letter in the online submission form. Please request the referee to include your full name or a similar remark for identification purposes.
