All HEIs in the consortium are internationally-minded institutions with substantial experience and proven results in supporting foreign students and scholars. For example, at the coordinating partner ULB, 29% of its students, 33% of its researchers and 11% of its academics and administrators are foreign born.
Visiting and studying in several countries, with different languages and cultures, as it is the case for the Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degree’s Programme BDMA, is always a challenge. For this reason we have carefully prepared this guide for you. You can download the BDMA Student Guide in high resolution version (pdf, 18.2 MB).
The consortium can thus rely on existing and tried infrastructure for service provision. In addition, each full partner will hire a Local Administrative Manager (LAM) who will be the single contact point for students in all matters and will act as liaison between students and the administrative departments at their institution. The five LAMs will jointly collaborate and will be responsible for streamlining service provision to all students during their entire time in the programme, and be the students primary contact person for all their administrative and service needs.

Tuition fees cover insurance costs: all students thus get medical insurance coverage. The chosen insurance meets the minimum insurance requirements of the Erasmus+ programme for Joint Master Degrees.
As soon as a student enrolls in BDMA, the Coordination Office enrolls him/her for the whole duration of the programme and the student is informed of the terms and conditions of his/her insurance coverage. The student immediately gets a scanned copy of his/her insurance card (required before applying for a visa), and the actual card is delivered upon the student’s arrival in Brussels.
