Selection process and criteria

Updated November 20, 2017

The selection process includes two main steps:

1 – Pre-qualification

Eligibility check

Candidates who do not meet the eligibility criteria will be rejected and given notice about the reasons.

Evaluation of qualifications

For the remaining eligible candidates, the quality and relevance in relation to the MUrCS programme and its three thematic streams will be evaluated in three sections:

Score range
 Education 0–5
 Work Experience 0–5
 Motivation 0–5

Thus, maximum score in the prequalification step is 15.

2 – Final qualification

At this second stage, an adequate number of top-ranked candidates will be requested to submit certified copies of their supporting documents.

They will also be interviewed (~30 minutes on-line) by two persons from the Selection Committee. A number of issues, some general and some related to the actual application, will be discussed. The interviewers will agree on an addition to the score given in the pre-qualification:

Score range
 Interview 0–5

NOTE: Candidates who are found not to meet the required level of language proficiency during the interview will be considered ineligible.


Ranked by the total score of both steps (up to 20), a number of selected and reserves will be appointed. The limit of maximum three candidates per country will be strictly enforced. In case of candidates with the same final score, their relative ranking will be decided by, in order;

  1. Interview score
  2. Education grade

The final list will be submitted to the Erasmus+ secretariat for approval.


In each selection step, candidates will get possibility to appeal within one week from the notification. Further information and forms will be made available to these candidates.
