Participation costs (tuition fee)

The admission fee for the SAHC programme is 9,000 Euro. This covers the administrative costs of the programme (registration, enrolment, subscription, administrative support, access to faculty and university services, the organisation of the case studies, the thesis defence, and other expenditures directly linked to the organisation of the course). The admission fee does not cover the costs for health insurance, which should satisfy the “Minimum requirements for the health and accident insurance coverage”.

Consortium Scholarships

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 as a self-sustainable Masters Course, with scholarships sponsored by the SAHC Consortium.

Consortium scholarships are planned for students from any geographical origin applying within the first call and second call. These scholarships are financed by the SAHC Consortium itself and are open to students of any nationality.Consortium scholarships are organized as follows:

  • one scholarship of 13,000 Euro;
  • eight scholarships of 6,000 Euro;
  • ten scholarships of 4,000 Euro.


Any selected applicant must bear in mind that, if selected to a scholarship, the confirmation of acceptance of the scholarship by the student implies automatically that other interested applicants will not receive a scholarship, as the number of applicants is much larger than the number of grants. Therefore, the SAHC Consortium will request to all students selected for a scholarship the payment of a deposit of 250 Euro to confirm their acceptance of the scholarship and enrolment in the Master Course. The purpose of this measure is to avoid filling up the Master Course places with students that will not finally participate and that will compromise the enrolment of other interested students.

Important Notice

Only students who have applied to and have been accepted by the SAHC Consortium in accordance with its specific students’ application and selection criteria are eligible for a scholarship.

Students with double nationality must specify the nationality under which they submit their application.
