From the academic year 2014/15 onwards (applications accepted from winter 2014, payment from spring 2015), the Erasmus+ Program will offer the opportunity of applying for a low-interest loan for a complete Master’s degree abroad, i.e. in one of the Erasmus Program countries. This loan is backed by the European Investment Bank. You can apply for a maximum of €12000 (including tuition fees) for a one-year Master’s degree course and a maximum of €18000 for a two-year Master’s course.
