Erasmus Mundus Application Process
The University of Gothenburg’s services are responsible for managing the application processes and eligibility tests for entry requirements compliance.
The Joint Admission Committee of the EMHRPP, which is made up of the conveners and the administrative coordinator in Gothenburg, oversees the admission process on the basis of predetermined criteria.
Three categories make up the ranking:
- academic ability (maximum 40 points);
- motivational letter (20 points maximum);
- work history and letters of recommendation (up to 40 points).
A maximum of 100 points can be obtained by summing the three components. The final score awarded to each candidate is taken into consideration when ranking (from the highest to the lowest final score).
Equal opportunity policies that encourage the participation of students from underrepresented groups must be carefully considered.
