Cost/funding for participants:

About 25 full ERASMUS MUNDUS SCHOLARSHIPS will be available for all the nationalities (EU et NON EU students).


A full scholarship for non EU includes:

  • The full tuition fees (8000€/year)
  • A monthly allowance for living expenses of 1000€/month
  • Installation fee: 1000€ (lump sum at arrival)
  • Travel expenses (3000€/year – lump sum)
  • A health insurance (value 500€/year)

A full scholarship for EU includes :

  • The full tuition fees (4000€/year)
  • A monthly allowance for living expenses of 1000€/month
  • Travel costs: 1000€/year
  • A health insurance 500€/year

A student having full ERASMUS MUNDUS Scholarship will not be eligible for monthly allowance while he/she is studying in his/her home country (for example, a Belgian student with this scholarship will not get monthly allowance 1000€/month in the first year of the program).

CONSORTIUM SCHOLARSHIPS (industrial scholarships)

The consortium offers industrial scholarships for EU and NON EU candidates applying to M120. The number (3-4/intake) and amount of scholarships will be fixed according to to the fund availability. It will be distributed according to candidate CV’s quality and their motivation. A full scholarship is not given. We prefer to give partial scholarship to several students instead of full ones to only a few.

The Consortium scholarship may include (one of two of the following, not all):

  • Tuition fees (up to 5.000€ / year, valid for 2 years).
  • Free Health insurance at ULiège.
  • Travels: up to 500€.
  • Monthly allocation for living and housing (200-300€/month, during few months).


Academic Scholarship concerns excellent applicants, and this scholarship will cover a part of tuition fees and about 500€ / month for EU student and 850€ / month for non EU students.


If a student has not yet benefited from an ERASMUS study grant, he/she can apply during his/her stay at ULiège for a standard ERASMUS mobility grant (mobility inside EU) for the mobility to ECN, URO or ZUT (up to 12 months – beware: internship period can’t be covered by this scholarship). This is accessible to all students (except for those who have full Erasmus Mundus Scholarship or a Consortium Scholarship).

It is aimed to cover a part of the expenses due to the mobility, but it is not at all sufficient for a living! The scholarship is a lump sum (200~300€/Month), calculated on the basis of the destination and the number of months of study to be done there. A first transfer of 70% of the grant is done at the beginning of the stay in the destination university, after completion by the student of a certain number of administrative tasks, and the remaining 30% are transferred at the end of the mobility period, after completion by the student of a certain number of administrative tasks. The administrative tasks will be explained to the applicants in due time.
