Admission Requirements

Admission to EMOTION requires:

 

  • A Bachelor degree or higher from a recognized academic higher education institution (equivalent to a European undergraduate degree of 180 ECTS – 6 semesters) in a field related to the EMOTION area (for example Pharmacy, Medicine, Biology, Biochemistry, Chemistry, Pharmaceutical Sciences, Biomedical Sciences, Genetics, Molecular Biology). The grade average of the previous study should prove high qualification of the applicant.

 

  • The proof of English proficiency documented by an internationally recognized certificate (at least level B2).*

 

Accepted certificates are:

IELTS (academic test): minimum average score 6.5 [www.ielts.org]

TOEFL (paper-based): 560 [www.ets.org/toefl]

TOEFL (internet-based, or iBT): 88 [www.ets.org/toefl]

Cambridge Certificate of Proficiency (CPE), Grades A, B, or C [www.cambridgeenglish.org]

Certificate in Advanced English (CAE), Grades A, B, or C [www.cambridgeenglish.org]

Cambridge First Certificate, Grade A or B [www.cambridgeenglish.org]

These are the only tests accepted as proofs of English proficiency. Any other type of diplomas is not considered as valid proof of English proficiency.

* EMJMD consortium considers the countries listed below as countries of native-English speakers:

Antigua, Australia, Bahamas, Bahrain, Bangladesh, Barbados, Barbuda, Belize, Bermuda, Botswana, Canada (except Quebec), Commonwealth Caribbean, Dominica, Fiji, Ghana, Grand Cayman, Islands, Grenada, Guyana, Irish Republic, Jamaica, Kenya, Lesotho, Liberia, Malawi, New Zealand, Nigeria, Papua New Guinea, Sierra Leone, Singapore, South Africa, St. Kitts & Nevis, St. Lucia, St. Vincent & Grenadines, Swaziland, Tanzania, Tobago, Trinidad, Uganda, United Kingdom, United States, Virgin Islands, Zambia, and Zimbabwe.

Candidates coming from these countries are not required to attach any other evidence of English proficiency.

For candidates who have completed a degree programme fully taught in English in one of the native-English speaking countries listed above the proof of English proficiency is waived.

Study periods of different lengths not leading to a degree entirely held in English DO NOT count as sufficient demonstration of their English proficiency. A proof of English proficiency is required.

All other candidates are required to attach a proof of English proficiency.

The above certificates and exceptions are the only ones that apply and are a requirement by statute.

Yet, given the present pandemic, the Joint Admission board has decided to substitute this certification by a direct interview with short-listed applicants, if the proof of English proficiency cannot be provided. We nonetheless urge applicants to do their best to acquire such documentation.

If an English certificate cannot be provided by the time of application, the applicant should upload a signed declaration on (i) the fact that she/he believes that her/his English level is sufficient to qualify for a high B2/C1; (ii) the reasons that have prevented her/him from obtaining the certificate and (iii) the authorization to accept the judgement of the Committee on her/his English level by any mean, including during the interview if short-listed.

English proficiency remains a prerequisite of the Master, and the preferred manner of verification are the tests listed on the EMOTION website.

Candidates are responsible to meet the visa requirements for the countries in which each host institution is located, although the Masters’ secretariat will provide advice.

 

The deadlines for the intake 2021-2023 are summarized in the following scheme:
