Comparison table for English level scores


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.

Then, the professors assess 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. In other words, by applying to EMIMEO you acknowledge and certify that you’re not concerned by that statement.

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

For Programme and Partner country applicants, the official selection list will be known around April 2020.

NB: If you have NOT been contacted by email on 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 will be contacted per email to apply as self-funded student.
