The evaluation of candidates is made by a Selection Committee composed of representatives from each of the partner universities in the ChIR.
All eligible candidates are evaluated and ranked according to the following criteria:
A. Quality of previous qualifications - evaluates the academic curriculum of the candidate: previous degrees, post-graduate courses, specialization courses, scientific publications.
B. Proficiency in languages of the consortium, particularly English.
C. Motivation and Potential - measures the benefit to the candidate from the Master.
D. Suitability - match between the candidate’s profile and the Master. Appropriate professional experience is evaluated.
E. Recommendations - based on the confidential evaluation of the candidate by two referees.
Each criterion A-E is scored 0-5. Only very high quality candidates, with all criteria above 4, are accepted to the course.
Accepted candidates are ranked by order of merit. The higher ranked candidates are considered for a fee waiver or, when available, Erasmus Mundus studentships. There will be no Erasmus Mundus studentships available for 2018-2010.
