The Joint Operational Management Committee (JOMC) of the consortium will be responsible for the selection procedure. The Selection Committee consists of one representative of each partner and is chaired by the coordinator of the programme, which is IHE Delft. The JOMC evaluates the applications based on the selection criteria with a maximum score of 100 points. A rating scheme was developed by the JOMC prior to the attribution of qualification points, including BSc GPA, (relevant) work experience, publications, programme related activities, social activities, etc.
The following scores will be given:
A maximum of 30 points for the overall grade of the previous degree (Bachelor or equivalent) or the preliminary grade status at the time of application (minimum of 120 ECTS);
A maximum of 50 points for the marks of relevant study subjects during the previous degree, additional relevant academic or work experience inside and outside Europe, relevant extra-academic qualifications, and added value of a fellowship for the applicant and his career;
A maximum of 10 qualification points for the letter of motivation (statement of interest in the study programme). The criteria for the evaluation of the letter of motivation are: specific reference of the study programme, a clear description of own qualifications and objectives, coherence of the intended career with the study programme, and congruence of the applicant’s motivation of study with the orientation of the study programme;
A maximum of 10 qualification points for the two letters of recommendation. Criteria for the evaluation of the letters of recommendation are: relevance of referee, reference to relevant scientific, professional and personal qualifications and potential of the candidates, particularly with regard to the study programme.
The added value of a scholarship for the applicant and her/his career will also be considered.
Applications from those who have already obtained an MSc degree in a related area from a renowned university will be carefully analysed on motivation.
Based on the application material, the JOMC proposes the final list of students according to the students’ qualification rank.
The selected candidates will be informed soon after the selection. They will receive a Student Agreement with more information that needs to be signed. In case a candidate resigns, the next one on the list will be contacted.
Applicants for an Erasmus Mundus scholarship will be notified regarding academic admission after the scholarship selection has taken place. If you do not agree with the decision of the Committee on academic admission and scholarship selection and feel that the consortium/partnership has not handled your application in line with the application and selection procedures as described on the website, you have the possibility to appeal.
The applicant must send a letter addressed to the JOMC stating well-substantiated arguments against the decision. The letter must be sent within seven days following notification. The applicant can send the letter by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The appeal will be analysed by the JOMC and if justified, your application will be re-evaluated.
The applicant will be informed about the final decision within fourteen days after receipt of the appeal.

Scholarship applicants whose nationality is from one of the Partner Countries count as Partner Country applicants.
