A good level in English is required, since all courses are taught in English.


The applications are examined by the selection board of the consortium.
The selection criteria, which aims at recruiting top level candidates, will be based on the results obtained in the previous academic education of the applicant, on the academic background, on the CV, on the quality of the university of origin and on the motivation and recommendation letters. Only candidates with a good English level will be considered.
Students will be ranked by the selection board. The students of the main list and of the reserve list will be contacted by email after the selection board’s decision.


The admission of candidates from Programme and Partner countries will take place according to the rules imposed by the European commission.


Scholarships funded by the European Agency (Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degree (EMJMD) scholarships) can be obtained after a selection procedure only by students who apply for joining the program at the M1 level (1st year).
