It means that the 1st semester takes place in Bordeaux (France), the 2nd semester in Louvain-la-Neuve (Belgium), the 3rd semester in Cottbus (Germany) and the 4th semester is dedicated to the master thesis for which you’ll choose your destination.

There is no available grant for the 1st semester but there might be a possibility to apply for a grant for the 2nd and the 3rd semesters. The students will be provided with the information related to this grant during the 1st semester in Bordeaux. As for the 4th semester, depending on the place of the master thesis, there might be a possibility to apply for the grant. More information will be provided during the 3rd semester. Please note that such grant can only cover a part of the costs of a semester. That’s why we strongly recommend to be able to cover the fees and the costs of the master program by your own resources.
Every partner university of the TFM-ASA Master program will provide you with the support to find an accommodation before your arrival. There might be a possibility to find a student dorm close to the campus or other solutions such as private accommodation or shared flat.
Every student takes in charge the costs related to the accommodation.
You’ll receive the guidelines with your Acceptance letter. In fact, as you are going to stay more than three months in every country (France, Belgium, Germany), you’ll need to obtain a student visa for each country. First, you’ll need to apply for the student visa in order to come in France and afterwards during your semester in France you’ll apply for the student visa in Belgium. While studying in Belgium you’ll apply for the student visa for Germany. The International office of each university will guide for these steps. Another solution is to apply for the student visa with mobility which might cover your stay for the first year in France and Belgium. You’ll be able to renew it for the second year. Please note there is no guarantee you’ll obtain such type of visa. That’s why we recommend to follow the guidelines you’ll receive with the Acceptance letter.
