Deadline for International (non-EU) self-funding applications
Deadline for UK and EU self-funding applications
All applications are subject to an eligibility check which covers all aspects of the application: respect of the application deadline, completeness of the application file, eligibility of the candidate in relation to the Erasmus Mundus criteria. Applicants who fail to provide necessary documentation by the appropriate deadline will be excluded from the application procedure and will be informed of the specific reason for ineligibility.
To be eligible to be considered for scholarship, students must first have secured a place on the degree programme (unconditional or conditional). The University of Glasgow postgraduate admissions office assesses all applications and will reply directly to the applicant to let them know if they have been offered a place. Applicants who receive an offer of a place on the degree programme, and who have submitted the scholarship application on time, will be put forward to the scholarship competition.
The EUROSUD consortium selection committee assesses each application according to the following criteria:
- Academic merit (e.g. relevance and level of academic qualifications) - 30%
- Supporting personal statement - 40%
- Quality of (academic) references - 10%
- Other (e.g. relevant research/professional experiences/interests) - 20%
When a main list scholarship student withdraws, he/she is replaced by the first eligible candidate on the reserve list. In this particular case, the eligibility criterion concerns the nationality of the reserve list candidate and the rule concerning the presence of a maximum of three nationals from the same country among the scholarship holders in each intake. If there are already three other students with the same nationality on the main list, the consortium will have to take the next eligible candidate respecting its own ranking list (European Commission's regulations).
Appeal procedure for candidates who fail to secure a scholarship
All candidates will be notified of the decision of the scholarship selection committee by email only in April. Candidates who do not secure a scholarship and who wish to appeal the decision of the scholarship selection committee must do so in writing by email within 2 weeks (14 days) from the point of notification by the EUROSUD consortium of their failure to win a scholarship. The email should be addressed to the EUROSUD consortium at the following address: firstname.lastname@example.org. The email subject heading should contain the words "EUROSUD scholarship appeal". The reasons for the appeal must be clearly stated in the email. Note: A candidate may appeal ONLY on the grounds of defective or unfair procedure by the EUROSUD scholarship selection committee.
