Erasmus Mundus - IMFSE Scholarships

The “International Master of Science in Fire Safety Engineering (IMFSE)”, is a two-year educational programme in the Erasmus Mundus framework. This master course is commonly organized by:

* Ghent University, Belgium (coordinator)
* Lund University, Sweden
* The University of Edinburgh, UK

The main objective is creating an educational programme that provides the required knowledge for a professional fire safety engineer in a Performance Based Design environment. Besides interuniversity cooperation, student mobility in Europe is one of the main points of interest of the overall programme. The mobility structure, with possible change in study location after each semester, gives the students the opportunity to gain from the strengths and expertise of each of the three universities.

The 2-year course consists of four semesters of 30 ECTS-credits each. The mobility structure, with possible change in study location after each semester, gives the students the opportunity to gain from the strengths and expertise of each of the three universities.

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.

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 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.
