- Proficiency in English Language Required: IMFSE is an English-taught programme and an English language proficiency is thus a basic requirement.
Erasmus+: The Erasmus+ scholarships for Partner Country students are to be considered “full scholarships” since they cover all necessary costs during the study period in Europe. Over 2 years, the total amount of the scholarship is around 49,000 EUR. This includes a contribution to the IMFSE programme of 9,000 EUR per year, i.e. the tuition fee. The remainder of the scholarship, covering travel, accommodation and living costs, is paid to the student in monthly instalments plus additional fixed contributions during the course of the study, depending on your mobility.
