  4. Suitability - match between the candidate’s profile and the Master. Appropriate professional experience is evaluated.

The scores for all criteria are summed, and candidates are ranked by order of merit according to their global score (17.5-25.0).

Each year, a limited number (n) of Erasmus Mundus grants is available. The n top ranked candidates are selected r the main list of candidates.Geographical balance and gender balance restrictions apply.

The results are published in this website as a pre-selection of candidates to EMQAL. this pre-selection is sent to the EACEA, who will give the final approval of the candidates selected for Erasmus Mundus studentships.
