Selection

Applications are first evaluated for eligibility by the Secretariat and the Coordinator of the programme. Eligible applications are then submitted to the Selection Committee, which creates an absolute ranking list of candidates. The Selection Committee will be made of a member of each of the four institutions.

Applicants are ranked according to their academic merit (including academic records of previous studies, scientific background, ranking of academic institution where undergraduate studies were done, awards and grants), research experience (acquired practical experience), motivation letter and reference letters. Assessment of the academic merit range from 0,0 to 4. Assessment of research experience range from 0,0 to 2,5.  Assessment of the motivation letter range from 0,0 to 2,5. Assessment of the Reference letters range from 0,0 to 1,0. The 60 top candidates will be invited to submit a 1 minute video to the email address [email protected]. The applicants will be ranked and at least the top 20 will be selected and invited for an interview by tele-conference with the Selection Committee.  Assessment of the interview will range from 0.0 to 5.0 points. The interview will last 30 minutes: general questions will be asked, mainly regarding motivation for pursuing the program.

Selected candidates will be divided in two lists, the main and the reserve lists. These lists will take into account the number of programme and partner scholarships available and that no more than three of the students selected for an Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degrees scholarship should have the same nationality, as defined by the EMJMD guidelines.

Candidates that are not selected by the Selection Committee or that are not eligible are notified by email before April 1st, 2022.

To appeal you will need to ask formally to [email protected]it describing your case and the reasons for which you believe your application was dealt differently compared to those of other applicants or should have been dealt differently. The e-mail should be addressed to the Chancellor of the University (who should be in cc; [email protected]). The letter should contain the basis of your appeal: for example why you believe your application was dealt differently or unfairly or why you believe instructions on the website and on the application portal were not sufficiently clear and led you in error. You may make reference to any written correspondence you had during the application process.
Once an appeal is received, the program coordinator, in agreement with the chanellor of the university, will name an appeal committee which will answer solely to the question you pose in the appeal. You will be informed on the question posed to the appeal committee. If your appeal is successuful, your application will be re-evaluated. Only one appeal is possible.
The deadline to present the appeal is July 30th 2022.

In this case, the certified copy stamped and signed by the institution awarding the degree is considered an ORIGINAL. 

** The “dichiarazione di valore” (declaration of value) is an informative document describing the qualification awarded to a given person by an institution belonging to an education system other than the Italian system. It is used by the competent University offices to assess a given qualification for the purpose of admission to a degree programme or for recognition of the foreign qualification. It is usually issued by the Italian Embassy in the country where the qualification was awarded. It generally contains the following information: legal status and type of issuing institution; access requirements for the programme resulting in the qualification; legal duration of the study programme and/or overall commitment required of the student in terms of credits or hours; value of the qualification in the system/country where it was issued, i.e. for academic and/or professional purposes. The declaration of value can be replaced by:

  • a Diploma Supplement, based on the European Commission form, for academic qualifications awarded by institutions in countries in the European Higher Education Area (Bologna Process). Those wishing to enrol in a second cycle degree programme are not required to submit a certificate listing the exams or the syllabus;
  • attestations issued by ENIC-NARIC centres that contain all the information usually listed in the declaration of value and necessary for the evaluation of the degree.
