SELECTION

SELECTION PROCEDURE

Applications are first evaluated for eligibility by the UPO project manager and the administrative staff for their eligibility. 

Eligible applications are then submitted to the Joint Admission Board (JAB), which creates an absolute ranking list of candidates. JAB will be made of at least one member of each of the three institutions.

The items for evaluation are: 

  • academic record (0-4 points; the GPA of the first degree will be used and for those that are not available arithmetic conversions will apply); 
  • merit (0-4 points: based on the CV, this will include scientific background, awards, publications, second degree, extracurricular activities, relevance to the Master);
  • motivation letter (0-3 points).
  • referee’s evaluation (0-1 points).

The applicants will be ranked, and the top candidates will be invited for an interview by tele-conference. The interview will last 30 minutes: general questions will be asked, mainly regarding motivation for pursuing the program. Assessment of the interview will range from 0 to 8 points. 

Selected candidates will be divided in two lists, the main and the reserve lists and will be notified by email. 

Candidates that are not eligible or are not selected are notified by email.

APPEAL PROCEDURE

To appeal you will need to write formally to: [email protected] 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 also to the Chancellor of the University (who should be in cc; [email protected]). 

The appeal must be sent within 7 days from the notification of the result.

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 refer to any written correspondence you had during the application process. 

Once an appeal is received, the Joint Consortium Board, in agreement with the Chancellor of the university, will name an Application Appeal Committee. If your appeal is successful, your application will be re-evaluated. Only one appeal is possible.
