  1. Hello Miss or Mr.

    I am interested in registering for this master course.I cannot find information about the deadlines for classes starting in fall 2011. As far as I have researched, on the web-site was written that an announcement would be placed after August 2010, still I have troubles finding it.

    I will deeply appreciate an answer to my question.

    Thank you

    1. Hello, Dorina,

      I have gone through it too and all I could find is this:
      "When to apply

      There is no official deadline for postgraduate applications; we accept them right up until the beginning of term. However, if you are applying for a popular programme, it is in your best interest to submit your application as soon as you can so that you have the best chance of getting a place.

      You should also bear in mind that in order to secure accommodation on campus you must have received and accepted your offer and submitted your accommodation requirements by the deadline (usually mid-August)."

    1. Dear Krasi,

      this is a specific Erasmus Mundus programme (Strategic Project Management) webpage. What you informed us about is a list of all programmes. We try to be as specific as possible, but I must give you the credit – it could be mentioned on every our EM entry.

      Thank you for your valuable observation.



  2. Hello,
    could you, please, tell me if this scholarship is going to be available for 2012-2014 years. If it is so, could you post deadlines for the submission of applications, please?

    Kind regards,

    1. Dear richard,
