Students, scholars and staff interested in participating in the mobility scheme will apply on- line with the completed application being visible to the home, the coordinating and the host institution.application Students/Staff applicants can only list two intended destinations in their applications.
The application process will be executed in a 4 phase process: Phase 1: Application forms (posted online) will need to be filled out by all TG applicants and upload the required documents required documents Host Universities must accept TG1 home university language certificates if applicants do not have a specific accreditation: TOEFL, IELTS, etc.
Language certification, such as TOEFL, IELTS, etc. can be required by the host institution in the case of applicants from TG2 and TG3. Eventually Host Universities may require applicants to complete an on line interview to evaluate their language proficiency. Incomplete applications will be rejected.
Phase 2: Home Institutions will perform an initial eligibility check of applicants that is outlined by EACEA guidelines. Applicants who pass the initial eligibility check will have their applications forwarded to their listed potential host institutions for review.
Both home and host institutions will review and score applications. Scoring preference, however, will be given to the host institution. The home institution will evaluate one third of an applicant’s score, with the other two thirds being evaluated by the host institution.
Phase 3: Shortlisted applicants may be contacted by either the home or host institution for interviews. Remote communication means may be used for this purpose.
Phase 4: The SC will meet to perform final review of applications and scorings from home and host institutions and determine who will receive scholarships. Notifications will be sent via email to scholarship recipients by the Selection Board. Rejected Candidates will be able to appeal and/or request justification from the Selection Board for why their applications were rejected. Visa application process and further guidance ensues upon students’ acceptances of scholarships.
