The competition for scholarships is very tough. It is important to know that only about 20% of applications are pre-selected.
It is imperative to submit all documents and papers in full compliance with the requirements of the Commission. You can check these requirements at the official website of the Erasmus program. It is necessary to review and notarise all documents carefully.
2. The Choice of Program
The next secret of entering Erasmus + Master is the right choice of the programs for you. When choosing a plan, you should consider what you want to do and how your previous education complements your specialization. Take some time to select the right program.
3. Your Grades and Personal Statement
Contrary to expectations, your grades do not carry much weight in the decision of admission or refusal. The selection committee will give much more attention to your statement. Typically, the importance of a personal statement for the Commission is about 35-40% of the entire package of documents.
Often programs require a statement of purpose in addition to a personal statement. Pay attention to those two kinds of letters: they are not the same thing. When applying for Erasmus programs, first of all, it is essential to show a research interest: it will help you to be accepted for a scholarship.
Reflecting your advantages and strengths in the motivational letter is important. You should write as creatively and originally as possible. It is a big mistake to duplicate your resume in motivation letter. We recommend you not to do it. You should prepare those two letters seriously.
4. CV and Letters of Recommendation
It is necessary to submit a comprehensive resume (CV) in Europass format, even if your program does not require it. Ask your scientific advisers and professors to write letters of recommendations for you. Choose only those referees with whom you worked closely.
5. High level of knowledge of English
We wish you success!
