The JPB will review all the applications according to the following scoring system:
|Evaluation criteria||Evidence||Weight in score|
|Academic performance||Student Transcripts||30%|
|Scientific quality of the institution (*)||Ranked university||20%|
|Professional experience||Student CV||20%|
|Language level||Language certificates||10%|
|Recommendation references||Reference letter||10%|
(*) online platform WEBOMETRICS or equivalent will be used: http://www.webometrics.info/en
The JPB will notify the applicants of its final decision to offer or reject their application based on the common admission criteria outlined above and chances of success in the programme (possible pursuit of a PhD programme or integration in an industry research unit in the student’s home country may also be considered). A supervisor (appointed by the JPB) will recommend the most suitable pathway for an applicant based on the information contained in the application form.
The selection process will take place early enough to allow for notification of the final decision one month prior to the commencement of the first semester of each intake. Applicants will be admitted only when they have obtained the necessary visas, permits and insurance policies. The REM Secretariat will assist with these procedures. The partner universities will provide assistance to students through their respective International Offices.
Requirements for insurance cover (including for example, personal, accident, health, civil liability insurance) for students enrolled in the programme will follow the rules in force at the university at which the student is enrolled and fulfil the minimum requirements laid out by any funding bodies (if any) from whom the partner universities accept funding.
Scholarships and grants made to students will be awarded on the basis of demonstrated merit according to the scoring system foreseen. There will be a limited number of scholarships reserved for students with special needs.
Transparency of the application, admission and selection procedures are guaranteed by the publication of the relevant information procedures.
In accordance with each partner’s Equal Opportunities Policy, the Programme is open to anyone regardless of age, class, creed, disability, ethnic origin, gender, marital status, nationality, sexual orientation or caring responsibilities. All individuals are selected and treated on their relative merits and abilities in line with this abovementioned Policy. Disabled applicants will be treated according to the same procedures as any other applicant with the added involvement of each Party’s Disability Offices to assess their needs. The Programme may require adaptation for students with special needs (e.g. hearing impairment, visual impairment, mobility difficulties, dyslexia, etc), particularly the practical laboratory sessions, and the partners will make reasonable adjustments to accommodate students wherever possible. If a student has particular needs these will be discussed with him/her at the selection stage. All partner universities have comprehensive support for and experience with students with a wide range of disabilities.
Students participating in the master should have sufficient funds for the full period of study on the Programme as the Consortium is not responsible.
After being selected by the JPB, all applicants, supported by the REM Secretariat will follow the registration procedure in each of the Partner Universities involved in the student’s mobility path, according to its own rules and regulations.
