Erasmus Mundus Scholarships are awarded by the European Commission to the best candidates. To be selected, an applicant must have earned a Bachelor’s degree in Science (Physics, Chemistry, Metallurgy, Materials Science, Electrochemistry) or its equivalent within the year of application. Students in their final year of undergraduate study may be admitted on the condition that their Bachelor’s degrees are awarded before they enrol. Applicants will be evaluated on the basis of their prior performance and professional promise, as evidenced by academic records and letters of reference from individuals familiar with their capabilities. As all the courses will be taught in English, students whose native language is not English must pass TOEFL* or IELTS** prior to applying to the Master.
