Admission information

General Eligibility Criteria

The Master's degree is designed to provide additional education or training in the student's specialized branch of knowledge. The minimum requirements for admission to the Masters are:

1) Strong Academic Background in appropriate disciplines

A "strong academic background" in appropriate disciplines means candidates must hold a high education diploma issued by a competent High Education authority attesting the completion of a degree equivalent to a 1st cycle (180 ECTS), in a field where analytical laboratories play an important role. This may be a degree in Chemistry, Biology, Pharmaceutical Sciences, Biochemistry, Environmental Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Food Engineering, Clinical Analysis, Medicine, etc.

2) Demonstrated command of the English language

A "demonstrated command of English" means the candidate must prove he/she can understand, speak and write English proficiently enough to take the modules, which are all taught in English.

Possible examples include:

  • Test of English as a Foreign Language, TOEFL scores paper 575 / computer 232
  • Internet based TOEFL (TOEFL iBT™ ) total score 93
  • International English Language Testing System, IELTS scores 6.5
  • General Certificate of Education, GCSE, AS Level, A Level
  • Cambridge Proficiency Certificate, CPE, Level 4-5
  • Oxford Higher Certificate, International Certificate Conference (ICC Stage 3 Technical)

In case the candidate cannot present an official test of English language in time for the deadline for applications, he/she may take the self-test included in the online application. A minimum classification of B2 is required in all fields.

In case of selection, candidates who only took the self-test will be interviewed. The interview will have the objective of confirming the self-test of English proficiency presented in the application. In case the interview shows the proficiency is below what was stated in the application, the application will be cancelled.

3) Adequate financial resources

When you apply there is no guarantee that you will be considered for an ERASMUS or ERASMUS MUNDUS studentship so you should be fully aware of the financial costs of the programme. All candidates must take the financial aspects in consideration when applying. The studentships are extremely competitive and only the very best students in a field of many excellent applicants will be awarded the studentships.
You should indicate clearly if you are relying on ERASMUS, ERASMUS MUNDUS or other studentships to finance your study.
Before final acceptance, candidates who were not awarded a studentship will be required to submit a Guarantee of full financial support for the duration of the studies. The University needs to now that you have sufficient funds to cover the entire period of study. This document must be signed by whomever is meeting your university expenses. It may also have to be certified by a bank or lawyer. Keep a copy of this form since you may also need it to apply for your student visa. Please note, however, that the university will issue the relevant certificate of eligibility for a student visa only if you are able to document fully your source(s) of income.


Individuals who have already benefited from an Erasmus Mundus Master studentship are not eligible for a second studentship in order to follow EMQAL.

One individual may apply only to a maximum of three Erasmus Mundus Master courses at the same time. Candidates who do not comply with this rule may have their applications cancelled by the EACEA.

Candidates applying for an Erasmus Mundus scholarship must document the place of residence at the time of application. The Erasmus Mundus grants depend to a certain extent on the home address of the applicant, and proof theoreof must thus be uploaded during the application process. More information about this can be found in the Instructions for candidates.
