In order to be eligible for admission, the applicant should have been gained within a Bachelor degree programme (180 ECTS at time of application) in Electrical Engineering, Electronics, Telecommunication Engineering, Computer Science or Physics.

The EMIMEO Master consortium assesses all applications according to qualitative selection criteria : academic records, curriculum relevance with EMIMEO Master, institution reputation, motivation, reference letters, English level, prof./research experience.

If you have already received an EMJMD or an Erasmus Mundus Master Course/Joint Doctorate scholarship, you are not eligible for an additional EMJMD scholarship. By candidating to EMIMEO you acknowledge and certify that you’re not concerned by that statment. 

If pre-selected, the student will be invited to an interview, (by phone or videoconf.) which will be held in English language.

For Programme and Partner country applicants, the official selection list will be known around April.

NB: If you have NOT been contacted by email at that date, this means you are NEITHER part of the Main nor Reserve List.

If you have not been selected for EMIMEO scholarship but your profile presents a high academic level, you are automatically considered for 2nd recruitement wave, i.e. application to join EMIMEO master with your own financial means.

However, you will be contacted per email in order to find out whether or not you accept to apply as self-funded student.
