Definition of Erasmus Programme and Partner Countries

EMJMDs are highly integrated study programmes that are delivered by an international consortium of Higher Education Institutions. They aim to:

  • Foster excellence, innovation, and internationalisation in Higher Education Institutions
  • Boost the attractiveness of the European Higher Education Area (EHEA) and support the EU’s external action in the field of higher education
  • Improve the level of competences and skills of Master graduates, and their employability.

After you have accepted an unconditional offer, you will be eligible to enrol. Details regarding your access to enrolment will be available starting in early August. You will receive another email to tell you how to register online using the University’s MyCampus website. That email will provide you with your personal login details and the website URL. Please ensure that your email address is kept up to date as all correspondence is sent via email.

If you are an international student you will receive a Confirmation of Acceptance of Studies (CAS) which is required for visa application purposes. A CAS is only issued once you have accepted an unconditional offer and you have uploaded a copy of the passport you are going to travel with. If you hold more than one offer, please think carefully before you accept your offer as CAS cannot be changed easily. Rules about how your personal information is recorded on CAS are very strict so please inform us quickly if any of your details have changed. Let us know if you have changed your name, your passport or if you notice any errors in the correspondence issued to you. Your personal and course details must match your documents exactly.

You will also receive information regarding the teaching programme from Central and East European Studies closer to the start of the session.

You will receive an email from the Admissions Office.  Please retain this email communication as no hard copy offer letter will be sent.  This message will contain your Student ID and Application Number.  You must accept or decline the offer using Admissions Self-Service by clicking the link provided in the email message and logging into your application account. Please follow the instructions provided in the email.  Applicants may wait until the scholarship awards are announced before replying to the Admissions Office or making English Language test arrangements.  If your offer is conditional you will be able to access your conditions and submit any required documents using Applicants Self-Service.   Please upload the required documentary evidence to your online application. Once we have confirmed your documentary evidence as meeting the conditions we will issue you with an unconditional offer. Please note that uploaded academic documents should be scanned copies of the original document and should normally be in colour.

All eligible applicants (those who submitted their application by the scholarship deadline and who have received either a conditional or unconditional offer of a place on the degree programme) are considered for scholarship.  The Consortium will submit final nominations to the EACEA at the end of March. We hope to let applicants know the result as soon as possible after this date. Formal notification will follow in May when the Agency has approved the final list of awards.

The maximum number of Masters Courses for which students can apply is three. This is meant to encourage students to focus their choice. To this purpose students are required to specify in their application whether they have applied to other courses. The Commission will verify if students have been selected on more than one course and notify the relevant Consortia of such cases.

An applicant who is completing the final year of his/her first degree can apply and will be considered for entry to the IMCEERES programme but will not receive an unconditional offer of a place on the programme until we have received his/her final degree result. In such cases you may be made a conditional pending completion of your degree at the required grade.  This documentation must be submitted to the IMCEERES Consortium via the University of Glasgow online application before a final unconditional offer can be made.  Similarly, applicants completing the final year of their first degree may be offered an IMCEERES scholarship upon condition that they obtain the outstanding entry requirements.  Documentation must be provided as soon as possible and no later than the given deadline in July of the year of entry.

An applicant who is unable to provide proof of English Language qualification can apply and will be considered for entry to the IMCEERES programme.   In such cases you may be made a conditional offer pending receipt of the language test result at the required grade.  This documentation must be submitted to the IMCEERES Consortium via the University of Glasgow online application before a final unconditional offer can be made.  Similarly, applicants may be offered an IMCEERES scholarship upon condition that they obtain the outstanding entry requirements.  Documentation must be provided as soon as possible and no later than the given deadline in July of the year of entry.

IMCEERES lasts for 2 years (4 semesters). Students study at the University of Tartu and the University of Glasgow in year 1 and  at a multiple degree partner university in year 2.

The Consortium will only accept online applications for the IMCEERES programme.

You can apply as a self-funded student or you can apply for an EMJMD Programme country or Partner country scholarship.

The Consortium will pay the health insurance costs for all students. The University uses Erasmus Mundus approved insurers.

Additionally, IMCEERES students will be covered by the University of Glasgow’s insurance scheme which will be valid in other partner countries for the duration of the 2-year programme. This gives emergency medical cover only but covers postgraduate students, accompanying spouses/partners and children for a maximum period of 12 months on any one trip. There is no excess. The insurance coverage is very comprehensive: death or severe permanent disablement (£150,000); medical & emergency repatriation expenses (unlimited coverage); personal belongings (£10,000); personal liability: limit of indemnity – any one event (£5 million); emergency replacement of passport, visa, travel documents etc (£1,500) etc

IMCEERES students are advised to obtain the European Health Insurance Card prior to arrival in Glasgow for the start of the programme. Both EU and non-EU (Third Country) students are entitled to apply for this.

Third country students will have to supply a copy of their original visa showing that they are entitled to be in the UK for the period in question and in this way will have full EU medical care cover. EU national students can apply through their own EHIC equivalent so they are entitled to health care in the UK.  Again overseas nationals who might be studying at the partner universities can apply through the partner country which their visa is for. Basically students will be entitled to medical treatment that becomes necessary, at reduced cost or sometimes free, when temporarily visiting a European Union country. Only treatment provided under the state scheme is covered.

Do I need to send you my original references?
No, clear scanned copies of your references on headed paper are acceptable and you can upload these yourself when you are making your application online or you can upload them through Applicant Self-Service after you have submitted your application. If your referees prefer to send references directly to us then they can do so by email (see ‘Can my referees email their reference?’ below). If your referees would prefer to post references then this is also possible (though email is preferred) and you should ask them to post the reference letters, on headed paper, to the address below. Your referees should state your name, your Student ID and the course you are applying for on the reference letter.

Postal Address:

PGT Admissions, Recruitment and International Office
71 Southpark Avenue
University of Glasgow
Glasgow
G12 8QQ

Can you contact my referees yourself to ask for references?
No, that is not possible. It is your responsibility to request the references in the first instance and make sure they understand what we require from them. We will occasionally contact your referees to obtain further information on your performance.

Can my referees email their references?
Yes, your referees can email a scanned copy of their letter to us, provided it is on headed paper. We will also accept a reference by email provided the email is from your referee’s professional email account and contains their full employee name and address. They should send it to the pgadmissions@glasgow.ac.uk.

Remember
Your references should be on official headed paper of either your undergraduate university or business of employer if you are providing a work reference. These should also be signed by the referee. You can then upload these to your online application through Applicant Self-Service (click on the ‘Upload Documents’ link at the bottom left-hand side of the screen, see http://www.gla.ac.uk/postgraduate/apply/applicantselfservice/ for more information).

Your references should include details of your academic/working performance. There is a referee report formwhich can give your referee a guide as to what to include in their reference. This report form is not required and is not sufficient as the reference alone, it must accompany a full written reference if used.

This programme is taught completely in English language. You must show evidence of your proficiency in English if you are not from a majority English speaking country. Also please note that under UKVI (UK Visa and Immigration) regulations, all international students (non-EU) who are not from a majority English speaking country or have obtained a degree from a university in a majority English speaking country, are required to take an English Language proficiency test to a required level. There are no exceptions. You are not able to gain entry to the UK and obtain a student visa without having the test certificate. Information on the different types of proficiency test which we can accept and the required scores can be found on our website.

No, individuals who have already benefited from an EMJMD scholarship are not eligible for a second scholarship in order to follow the same or another EMJMD.
