Do I already need to provide a proof of English proficiency during the application?
No, we only require this from admitted students. You do not need to obtain a proof of proficiency for the application process. If you already have a test result that could serve as proof of proficiency, you are free to upload this already so 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 conditions have to be provided before the deadline.
Should you fail to provide the required documents, your application to the programme is void and will not be reviewed. If you do not pay the application fee, your application will not be considered.
Do I have to provide original documents for the application?
No. The application is completely on-line. As such only electronic copies must be provided. Only 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. Documents must have been issued within 12 months before the application deadline. A proof of residence should clearly reflect the relation you have with the person issuing the document. If your employer for example issues the document, it needs to be clear that he is your employer. 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?
We require that students without a background in Law or Economics have taken a substantial amount of courses relevant to the EMLE programme. In order to judge this, we need a scan of your transcript of records or a list of your courses. Please send this to firstname.lastname@example.org.
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 email@example.com. 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.
