The admission decisions are out!

Dear applicants,

We would like to inform you that the admission decision has been sent out. Please check your inbox to see whether you have received the e-mail in good order.

The Joint Selection Committee has selected in total 534 applicants to be considered for admission to the EMLE programme 2023/2024. However, due to the high number of applications we received this year, we are operating with a waiting list. The admission decision that you received contains one of the following results:

  1. You have not been selected as a candidate for the EMLE programme, and are also not admitted to the waiting list;
  2. You are considered for admission to the EMLE programme, and are currently offered a place on the waiting list;
  3. You are admitted to the EMLE programme; or
  4. You are admitted to the EMLE programme, and are nominated for an Erasmus+ scholarship.

The EMLE programme decided to award a total of 21 full scholarships in this academic year: 12 for regular scholarships (‘heading 2’) and 9 scholarships for students from NCDI or IPA countries (‘heading 6’) according to the specific rules and ratio specified within the grant agreement between the EMLE programme and the funding agency EACEA. The scholarships are awarded based on merit, established by the final ranking of all applicants. This means that if your e-mail does not mention the Erasmus+ Scholarship, you have not been nominated. The outcome of the EMLE Outreach Scholarship decision will be communicated next week.

The final ranking was based on the following criteria:

Selection Criterion Relative weight
University career: duration, number and quality of the degrees obtained, relevance to the subject, academic credentials and academic performance 40%
Strength of the motivation letter 25%
Affinity of the previous studies with the objectives of the Master Programme 25%
Letters of Recommendation 10%


Please note that due to the large number of applicants we are not able to provide more detailed information about the individual ranking.

For example, if you have reasons to believe that documents in your application form were overlooked in the assessment. Your argumentation in this letter of appeal should be based on the abovementioned selection criteria. Please note that no information other than what is mentioned in your application form will be considered in the appeal procedure (e.g., further education, experiences, certificates or documents). You can send your letter of appeal to
