Applications (academic year 2022/2023)

SAHC ran for ten consecutive years as an Erasmus Mundus Masters Course, co-funded by the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Union. In that period, SAHC received 325 students from 65 countries worldwide. SAHC has reached its maturity and is now running its 15th edition as a self-sustainable Masters Course, with scholarships sponsored by the SAHC Consortium only.  

The SAHC International Masters Course starts in early September and finishes in early August every academic year. The opportunities to apply are grouped into three calls, as follows:

First Call

The first call is opened to all students.

Applications must be submitted no later than January 20, 2022. Every eligible application submitted to the SAHC Master programme within this deadline is automatically considered also as an application to a Consortium scholarship. All applicants are notified about admission during February. Afterwards, the selected students for a Consortium scholarship are notified about their selection by the Consortium by February 28.

Second Call

The second call is opened to all students.

The deadline for the 2nd call is due by May 20, 2022. All applications submitted within this deadline are automatically considered also as applications to a Consortium scholarship. Please note that students which have applied during the first call can also be considered within the second call if they inform the SAHC Consortium about it.

All applicants are notified about admission during May. Afterwards, the selected students for a Consortium Scholarship are notified by June 10. Any possible remaining Consortium scholarship will be made available for the third call.

Third Call

This last call is also opened to all students. The deadline for the third and last call is due by July 20, 2022. However, scholarships will be offered only if the Consortium scholarships available during the second call were not fully allocated. Applicants which have applied during the first and second calls and did not receive a Consortium scholarship can also be considered within this call provided that the SAHC Consortium is informed about it.
