Scholarships for International Master of Science in Fire Safety Engineering

The Universities of Edinburgh (UK), Ghent (Belgium) and Lund (Sweden) submitted a winning proposal for an Erasmus Mundus Master Course in Fire Safety Engineering. The initiative is carried by Prof. Bart Merci (Ghent University, co-ordinator), Prof. Jose Torero (University of Edinburgh) and Prof. Robert J├Ânsson (Lund University).
The curriculum concerns a two-year programme. The classes in the first semester, covering basic topics in Fire Safety Engineering (FSE), can be attended in Ghent or Edinburgh. All students spend the second semester in Lund, where emphasis lies on enclosure fire dynamics, risk analysis and human behaviour. In the third semester, classes are again taught in Ghent (for general FSE) or Edinburgh (with focus on structural engineering in the context of FSE). The fourth semester is devoted to the Master’s thesis, hosted by one or more of the three institutes.
Scholarships for Non- European students
Erasmus Mundus-scholarships for non-European students are to be considered as “full scholarships” covering all necessary costs of the student during his/her study period in Europe. Over 2 years, the total amount of the scholarship is € 48,000. This amount of € 48,000 includes a fixed contribution of €8,000 to travel and installation, a contribution to the EMMC participation costs of € 8,000 per year (covering the annual tuition fees), and monthly installments of € 1,000 per month.
European students
The Erasmus Mundus-scholarship for European students is considered as a “financial contribution”. Over 2 years, the total amount of the scholarship is € 20,000. This amount of € 20,000 includes a contribution to the EMMC participation costs of € 4,000 per year (covering the annual tuition fees), and monthly installments of € 500 per month.
