How do I apply for the MEME programme?
How do I apply for he Erasmus Mundus Scholarship?
Select ‘yes’ in the MEME application form where it says: ”I would like to apply for an EMJMD scholarship”.
My background is not in evolutionary biology. Can I still apply?
Please be aware however, the reason that we ask for a BSc in Biology or a closely related field with a background in evolutionary biology or neighbouring disciplines (e.g. ecology or systematics) has a reason. The pace of the courses is very high and there is simply no time to repair any missing ecology/biology knowledge.
Generally there are many applicants that so have the required background and therefore have a greater chance of getting selected.
I don’t have my BSc diploma yet. What do I do?
If you do not yet have a diploma, you must provide us with a copy of a certified document that convincingly proves that you will complete your BSc degree before the start of the following academic year (September 1st).
My English test is scheduled after the MEME application deadline. Can I still apply?
Yes. Sometimes logistic reasons prevent students from obtaining proof of sufficient proficiency in English before the application deadline has passed. If such students can provide other convincing proof of proficiency in English (e.g. by an official letter of their university stating that the complete BSc programme of the student was taught in English) their application will be taken into consideration.
Alternatively, applicants can:
- mention their test date on the application form
- mention when we can expect the test result, and
- add any proof that you have applied for a test (i.e. email of registration) to your Application package, and
- send a screenshot of the results to firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as they are available.
Please be aware that in above cases, admission to the MEME programme will typically be conditional upon passing an English language test before the start of the MEME programme.
My transcript doesn't state my rank or GPA. What do I do?
You can calculate your GPA yourself:
(grades * credits)/ credits = GPA
Please also mention the grading scale.
So if the grading scale is 1-10 and your GPA is 8, please fill out 8/10 in the application form.
