Fees and Scholarships

The AMIR Programme welcomes students from across the European Union and the world. AMIR is a world leading programme in the field of materials recycling, but we believe that education should be as accessible to all and we take pride in graduating the raw materials innovators of the future. To achieve this goal we have tried to keep our fees lower than many European Master programmes, and where possible to provide additional scholarship opportunities for students once accepted into the programme.

AMIR annual programme fees are:

    • 2000€/year for European students*
    • 4000€/year for students from the rest of the world**

Scholarships & Incentives

The AMIR Programme has several scholarship and incentive opportunities available. These are dependent on a student’s eligibility status and academic achievements on the programme.

EIT Label Scholarships

The AMIR Master has obtained the EIT label for 2019 and 2020 intakes and therefore offers EIT label scholarships to all students of 13,500€ for living costs for the duration of the programme, to be paid during semesters 2 and 3.

FIDEX Scholarships

Additional ‘FidEx’ grants are based on merit, and awarded by the University of Bordeaux’s Excellence Initiative (IdEx) for the best students spending their 1st year at Bordeaux. The amount of these grants is 650€/month/student during 9 months of the 2nd year of the programme.

Applications for FIDEX Scholarships - Who can apply?

Based on 1st year results, the best two students studying the programme at the University of Bordeaux will be invited to apply for a FidEx grant. The selection process is therefore based on the grades obtained during the 1st year, which are usually available at the beginning of July. Selected students will be informed of their eligibility and will be invited to apply when the summer application window opens towards the end of the year.
