In January 2014 MISOCO applied but did not receive continuation of funding under the new Erasmus+ scheme of the European Commission. The consequence of this decision is that of 2016 MISOCO lost its Erasmus label. The funding period by the European Commission also ended on 30 June 2016.

What does this mean for MISOCO Alumni?

The degrees awarded under the EMMC MISOCO are and will remain valid. All degrees form part of accredited degree programmes which will continue beyond 2016.
