Admission and Eligibility



The GEM programme aims to admit highly qualified students from the widest possible range of countries and with an equal representation of both genders, if possible.

Each year we receive between 400 - 500 applications. We expect to offer 15 Erasmus Mundus scholarships for the 2022 intake, but we will also accept highly qualified students that obtain other types of scholarships or self-funded students.


Proficiency in the English language is a prerequisite; applicants whose first language is not English are required to demonstrate an acceptable standard by means of an approved English language test.

Nationals of countries, who are not on the list of exempted countries are, without exceptions, required to submit an approved English test score.

Note 1: Please note that only the tests in the table above are recognized by the consortium.  
Note 2: Test scores of more than two years old are not acceptable, with the exception of the Cambridge test.
