If you can not get a scholarship and attend AMASE as a self-financing student, you may still receive financial support from the EU. This is a regular form of Erasmus+ funding, which all students in Europe are eligible for if they study in another European country. Although Erasmus+ is not equal to a full-scholarship, it is a mobility allowance which will help you cover your costs abroad. The amount depends on each country and varies between 250 – 350€ a month. You may receive funding for your second year in AMASE, so the time you study at your Second University.

Studyportals Tip: Students can search online for independent or external scholarships that can help fund their studies. Check the scholarships to see whether you are eligible to apply. Many scholarships are either merit-based or needs-based.
