studies.

died, you must provide the self-declaration affidavit (in accordance with article 46 T.U. – D.P.R. no.

There are three important news for those students who want to join the Erasmus+ program in the next years:

– DOUBLED FUNDING
– NO AGE LIMIT
– ANTICIPATED MONEY

The Erasmus program has been renewed for the next 7 years. Yesterday the European Parliament gave the final green light to the project Erasmus+ for the
years 2021-2027. This program, dedicated to training, youth and sport, will see its funding doubled, going from 14.7 billion in the previous years, to more than 28 billion. In the final phases of the negotiation with the Council, deputies managed to obtain an additional amount of 1.7 billion euros. The new Erasmus+ will offer more instruments and resources that will support inclusiveness. The Commission and EU member states are to present action plans to improve access to learning and mobility for those people who always had fewer possibility to take part in the project.

This includes people with disabilities, people living in poverty or in a remote area or coming from an immigration context.
Subsidies will also be given to those unable to cover the first expenses, for example the purchase of travel tickets or the reservation for accommodation. Furthermore, those applications presenting higher costs due to measures to guarantee inclusiveness will not be rejected.

Compared to the previous Erasmus+, the new program will also be available to students attending adult education programs. This will help people of any age and background to acquire new work and life skills, so that they can better adapt to the changes related to the upcoming green and digital transitions, and to the post- pandemic age of Covid-19. The program, which has already been approved by the Council, will come into effect as soon as it is published in the Official Journal of the European Union.

Holden Academy is a degree course (yes, it really is!) that will allow you to obtain a diploma that is equivalent to a three-year degree like DAMS. Clearly, the program and the disciplines are Holden-style. The degree course costs 10,000 euros per year, but don’t be discouraged: Holden Academy also has its special student welfare program, which you could find interesting.

SCHOLARSHIPS
Scuola Holden awards scholarships to applicants with an ISEE (financial situation certificate) value lower than €40,000.

Two scholarships maximum will be awarded for each test session.
Scholarship winners must present ISEE 2021 Certificate (standard form), confirmed application form and the signed contract within the week we will have sent the results.
ISEE value must be lower than €40,000.

Once you get your diploma, you have one-year time before starting to repay the loan, in instalments, to the bank. During your degree course you must pay grace period interests. Then you have a 6-month period to pay off your debt (you can do it even more quickly).All of this is possible since Scuola Holden is recognized by Banca Intesa Sanpaolo as one of the schools which can provide loan facilities to their students. For further information contact segreteria@scuolaholden.it.
