Do I already need to provide a proof of English proficiency during the application?
No, we only require a proof of English proficiency from admitted students. You do not need to take an English test before the application deadline. If you already have a test result that could serve as proof of English proficiency, you are free to sent it to us at firstname.lastname@example.org so that we can inform you in case it does not meet our requirements. This is just for your awareness and will not affect your application review.
What happens if I can’t provide the necessary application documents?
All application requirements have to be met before the deadline mid-January. Should you fail to provide the required documents, your application to the programme is incomplete and will not be reviewed.
Do I have to provide original documents for the application?
No. The application is completely online. As such only electronic copies must be provided. Once we have admitted students (usually in March), we require the admitted students to send original documents.
What suffices as a proof of residence?
The proof of residence should be a residence certificate issued in accordance with the candidate’s municipality normal registration rules or a certificate from the candidate’s place of work, study or training issued by the employer or institution in question. The document must have been issued within 12 months before the application deadline. Furthermore, the document needs to contain the date at which it was signed, your name and the place where you live. A passport cannot serve as a proof of residence!
I do not have a background in Law or Economics, am I eligible to apply?
Applicants with a other degrees than law and/or economics may also apply under the condition that they can show in their letter of motivation and essay that they are clearly interested in studying the economic analysis of law and that they have a clear idea about the approach they will learn to apply within the EMLE programme. Their previous studies do not have to contain law and or economics, but the student has to be willing to study both subjects in order to have the necessary basics to follow the EMLE courses. If you’re in doubt whether your degree qualifies or you have any further questions regarding qualification, please contact email@example.com.
Where can I find the standard form for the recommendation letter?
In the application form, you will find a section about recommendation letters. Here you should enter the (professional!) email addresses of your reviewers. They will automatically receive an email with the standard review form and an upload link.
I want to submit more than two recommendation letters, is this possible?
No, the maximum number of letters is two per applicant.
I have not graduated yet, so I cannot upload a diploma to the application form. What should I do?
If that is the case, you do not need to upload your diploma. Please upload a transcript of grades that shows the courses you have completed so far. Preferably (but not mandatory), this document also contains your expected date of graduation or a letter from your university stating this.
The application deadline has passed for the next academic year but I would still like to join the program next year – what are the options?
If the official application deadline has passed, there still might be the option for late applications to the program. To inquire, please contact the EMLE office at firstname.lastname@example.org. Late applications can eventually be accepted if the applications pass the review procedure, if there are still spots at the different University partners and if the application can be submitted still in time for students to join the program from the start. It is possible, that desired tracks or term locations will not be available any longer. Also, late applicants may not be nominated for Erasmus+: Erasmus Mundus (EMJMD) scholarships.
How can I apply for the Erasmus+ Scholarship?
There is the possibility that the highest ranked students will be offered an Erasmus+: Erasmus Mundus Joint Masters (EMJM) scholarship by the European Commission. If you are admitted to the EMLE Program, you will automatically be considered in the allocation of the scholarships (you do not have to apply for it yourself). If you are interested in receiving this scholarship, you may indicate your interest in our application form. Once the application deadline closes, 19 January 2023, the separate application process for the Erasmus+ scholarship will start and interested applicants will be contacted.
