How To Apply For Erasmus Mundus Scholarship 2023

The University of Gothenburg’s services is 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.

The ranking is divided into three parts:

  • academic competence (up to 40 points);
  • motivation letter (up to 20 points);
  • work experience and recommendation letters (up to 40 points).

A maximum of 100 points can be obtained by summing the three components. The ultimate score awarded to each contender is taken into consideration for 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.
