Specific information for selection in the third application call in May 2013

For the third application call, the earliest start of mobility will be December 2014. As soon as the application closes the selection process will start and takes place as follows:

  1. For Target Group 1, the home institutions validate that the candidates applying are indeed registered at the home institution indicated in the application. They also rank the candidates according to pre-defined criteria.

  2. The partner institutions assess their own incoming applications according to eligibility criteria.

  3. Based on assessments made by the partner institutions, the Consortium Board takes the decision on which candidates are to be selected. The selection seeks to find overall balance among the sending and receiving institutions, gender, prioritized fields of study, etc.

  4. All candidates are informed about the result of their application via email from the Coordinating office. Foreseen time for notification: October, 2013. Note that you may be contacted by the institution you have applied for before you get the results of your scholarship application. Such contact may take place if you need to submit additional documents for matters of local admission, and does not mean that you have been selected for a scholarship. Only an official email from the Coordinating office should be considered the definite result of your application concerning the scholarship.

  5. If you are nominated, you will be contacted by your Host Institution who follow up on the practical arrangements of the mobility. The Host Institution's local rules are applied for admission and exam procedures.

  6. Admission Letters are generated automatically withing the online application system in case you are selected for mobility.
