Students from Switzerland, Turkey and the Western Balkans region.
The purpose of this message is to clarify the situation of applicant students from Switzerland, Turkey and the Western Balkans region (i.e. Albania, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Croatia, Kosovo under UNSC Resolution 1244/99, FYRoM, Montenegro and Serbia).
As, by October 2009, none of these countries has signed an agreement for its participation in the Erasmus Mundus Programme, they have to be considered as Third-countries.
Thus, students from these countries, who are not resident nor have carried out their main activity (studies, training or work) in EU member state, EFTA and EEA state for more than a total of 12 months over the last five years will be eligible for a Category A student scholarship. If this is not the case, they are eligible for a Category B student scholarship.
