1. Can I contact any current students or alumni to gather more details?

To get in contact with current JEMES CiSu students or JEMES alumni you have the following options:

  • JEMES CiSu official group page on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/groups/jemes.cisu.official 
  • Alumni group on LinkedIn called JEMES (CiSu) Alumni Association
  • Contact the alumni coordinator, who can put you in direct contact with JEMES alumni: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.


2. How will I be able to withdraw money from my bank account if I am in another country?

If you go to any country using the euro currency, you will be able to withdraw money from any ATM machine without paying additional taxes. If you go to a country that does not use euro currency, like Denmark, you can still withdraw money from ATM machines. However, you will be charged a fee each time you do that. So, the best solution in this specific case is to open a bank account there and transfer the complete amount of your scholarship from your bank account to a Danish bank account. This way, you will only pay once (when you transfer the money).

However, if you are a scholarship holder and start you studies in Aalborg, you will have to open a Danish bank account, since Aalborg University can only transfer your scholarship payments to a Danish bank account. You are welcome to open another account, when you go to study in one of the other consortium countries, but your scholarship payments will be transferred to your Danish bank account for the whole duration of the programme.


3. Do I have to participate in any language courses?

Yes, all students are required to take at least one foreign languange course (besides their native language and English) during their JEMES CiSu studies. The consortium universities offer courses in the language of the specific country for free (additional ECTS). Since your participation in a language course is compulsory, make sure that you receive an official approval for your participation. The accepted workloads for these courses are between 2 and 5 ECTS.


4. When do the language courses start? When do they take place?

This depends on the university you are studying at. Please check the websites of the universities to gather further information or contact your local coordinator.

5. When do the semesters start and end?

See the academic calendars for each university in the consortium here: Academic calendars.
