To participate in the new edition of the MEME programme, that starts in September 2013, students must apply by January 4 2013. This deadline is for both category A and B – please note that is a strict deadline as there is no time to accept late applications!
The applicants that make it into the 2nd round of the selection (Skype interview and presentation) will be invited for an interview with the MEME Admission and Examination Committee. They will receive a message the first half of February 2013 (date listed closer to that time).
The interviews will be in 2nd half of February 2013 and will be via videoconferencing (Skype), otherwise over the phone. Subsequently, applicants will be informed whether they will be admitted to the MEME programme, and whether the Admission and Examination committee has recommended them to the EU for receiving a scholarship. The EU decision on whether the student will actually receive a scholarship is then made by the EU before the end of April 2012.
If you do not receive and email mid February, you are unfortunately not selected for the second round. If this is the case you will receive an email before 8 Marchth 2013 (12 am CET)
MEME Selection steps after the deadline:
1 – Document check: Are all documents needed present in the application package
2 – Diploma or degree check: Is a check to see if the degree of sufficient quality (not all BSc degrees are of similar quality) to start the MEME programme. The degree quality databases Nuffic (the Netherlands) and Naric (UK) are used for this. As the University of Groningen is the coordinating institute, the rules of the Admission office of this university will be followed regarding the degree check.
3 – Grading: All remaining applications are read by all partners and graded between 1 (lowest) and 10 (highest). After the grading a ranking will be made (highest to lowest) and approx the top 25 category A and top 10 category B students will be invited for a Skype interview. The number of invited candidates also does depend on the number of scholarships we will receive.
