Privacy statement

Euroculture consortium regards privacy of its applicants and students as a priority. Please read the statement carefully. You are requested to agree with the conditions of the privacy statement when submitting your application via the application tool

Via the online application tool, Euroculture consortium collects certain personal data of the applicants.

What data are collected?

  • Full name
  • Date of birth
  • Nationality
  • Gender
  • Special needs
  • Address
  • Place of residence
  • E-mail address
  • Educational background and language skills
  • Professional and volunteer experience (CV)

Who collects and processes these data?

The data, together with the required documents, are available for processing to the Euroculture staff in the three universities mentioned during the application, as they assess the applications, and to the Euroculture consortium secretariat at the University of Groningen, that is in charge of coordinating the student intake each year and the selection of students for the Erasmus Mundus scholarship. In exceptional cases, these might be made available to another Euroculture consortium university. Erasmus Mundus scholarship applications are pre-screened by the Mobility Office of the University of Groningen to ensure that the educational level of the candidates is sufficient to be admitted to the Master in Euroculture.

The Euroculture consortium universities have signed an agreement on the procedures for collecting and processing applicants’ data. The University of Groningen, as the coordinating university of the consortium, is charged with collecting, storing and sharing the applicants' data with its partners. The data is stored relying on the facilities of our contractor iWink for 5 years after the application is submitted. 

Additionally, if an application is selected for Euroculture MA  (proposed for a scholarship, put on the reserve list or enrolled on a self-paying basis), its data may be used for the purposes of evaluating the Erasmus programmes, efficiently managing Erasmus projects, and producing statistics. Data could be made available to the Education and Culture Executive Agency (EACEA), the European Commission, the European External Action Service staff, as well as to other stakeholders of the Erasmus+ programme, such as Erasmus+ National Agencies, National Erasmus+ Offices and the Erasmus Mundus Student and Alumni Association. 

Why are these data collected and processed?

These data are collected in order to evaluate both self-funding and scholarship applications and determine which applicants can be accepted to the Master programme. Additionally, the information on applicants’ educational background (including the location of the first university) and nationality can be used to improve the Euroculture programme’s marketing and PR activities.

Every applicant is requested to read and agree to this privacy statement before submitting their application. The above-mentioned parties are therefore empowered to collect, store and process the applicants’ personal data through the explicit consent of the applicant.
