Process and Timetable:
Application to MARIHE programme takes place electronically via the MARIHE application database. A weblink leading to the database is displayed here on this page only if there is an application period in progress.
After you have entered all your data and documents in the MARIHE application database and have submitted your application, you will receive an acknowledgement of receipt by e-mail, sent to the e-mail-address you entered into the application database. For technical reasons, this acknowledgement of receipt may take some time.
Your application is then checked for eligibility. If you do not meet the eligibility criteria defined by the Erasmus Mundus Programme (cf. section “Erasmus+ Scholarships for Students”) or if you do not meet our admission requirements or if the application documents are incomplete or do not comply with formal requirements, your application will be rejected and you will receive a notice via e-mail.
Timetable and process for applications for Erasmus+ Scholarship (please note that for student intake 2017, a different timetable applies)
Application period for participation with an Erasmus Mundus scholarship is approximately open from August to December in the year before student intake. Eligible applications will be reviewed by members of the MARIHE Consortium Partners (January/February) according to our assessment criteria. The MARIHE Admission Board will then select applicants and propose a scholarship main list and a scholarship reserve list to the EACEA (end of February). Until end of March, all applicants will be contacted via e-mail and be informed on their application status (i.e. if their application is on the main list, on the reserve list, or has been rejected). Please note that being selected does in no way guarantee admission to the programme, as for admission process the timely submission of further (paper) documents is needed.
The approval of the scholarship lists by the EACEA is expected middle of May. Only after this approval can the MARIHE Consortium officially offer Erasmus Mundus scholarships to successful applicants. Succesfull applicants on the scholarship main list will be notified via e-mail, and will be asked to accept the scholarship offer by returning within one week a special application form (a template will be included in the notification). At the same time they will be asked to hand in documents necessary for their admission (within appr. three to four weeks, depending on the case). After these documents habe been submitted to Danube University Krems and have been checked for their compliance with the admission requirements, a letter of admission will be issued to the student. If documents are not submitted in time or if the outcome of the admission process is that documents do not comply with admission requirements, the scholarship offer will be withdrawn.
Applicants on the scholarship reserve list will again be contacted in case their application is moved to the main list. If MARIHE consortium expects no further changes to the scholarship main list, the main list will be closed (announcement on the website and on social media). This may take until June or even July.
