Note: Conditional Offers

An applicant who is completing the final year of his/her first degree or who has yet to provide the required evidence of proficiency in English will be considered for entry to the IMCEERES programme but will not receive an unconditional offer of a place on the programme until we have received his/her final degree and/or English language test results. In such cases you may be made a conditional offer on finishing your degree at the required grade and/or obtaining the required English language test results. This documentation must be submitted to the IMCEERES Consortium via the University of Glasgow before you can enrol on the IMCEERES programme. 

Similarly, applicants completing the final year of their first degree may be offered an IMCEERES scholarship upon condition that they obtain the outstanding entry requirements for IMCEERES (final degree and/or English language results).

Scholarship applicants who have received conditional offers of scholarships are expected to provide documentation of a final first degree and the official translations, and English language qualification by the IMCEERES programme deadline of 20 July of year of entry.

In all cases you are expected to provide documentation of a final first degree or current academic transcripts and their official translations by the relevant application deadline.
