Tuition Fees, self-funded student
All students admitted to the LIVE programme shall be subject to tuition fees. The partner institutions have determined the level of fees in accordance with national and institutional regulations and procedures, and after the EACEA (Education, Audiovisual and Culture Executive Agency) acceptance, at 9000€ per year for selected non programme country (partner countries, including developing countries) students and 4500€ per year for selected programme country students. Self-funded students will be able to pay participation costs in three installments.
The students shall be financially responsible for:
The total cost of the LIVE programme for a self-funded student can be estimated as below:
Why students from a partner country have to pay higher participation costs?
The higher participation costs for students coming from a partner country accounts for special needs, including more expensive hiring and student's affairs services costs. However, applicants from a partner country should note that available scholarships grants are also higher for students from a partner country.

Determine if you're from a Programme of Partner country:
Here is an indicative list of Programme and Partner countries.
Two additional rules apply to determine if you will be considered as from a Partner or Programme country:
The “single nationality rule”: students with a double nationality must specify the nationality under which they submit their scholarship application. When applying for LIVE, you should choose one and only one nationality if you hold dual citizenship.
The “12 months rule”: applicants from Partner country but who have carried out their main activity (studies, training or work) for more than a total of 12 months over the last five years in a Programme country will be considered as coming from a Programme country. The five-year reference period for this 12 month rule is calculated backwards as from the submission deadline (i.e. 27th of February 2015).
Please note that the legal basis and documentation that prevails for determining if you are from a Programme or Partner country is the English version and latest version of the Erasmus programme guide, pages 24 to 26 (valid as of 10/10/2014).
