Once the student is admitted by the EDEEM Program a letter of Acceptance is issued for him and is immediately sent to his postal address. Equally the letter will be uploaded on your personal page. The mobility track of each student is explicitly stated in the letter.
In case the student is awarded an Erasmus Mundus Scholarship, he/she will receive both the Acceptance Letter and the Scholarship Selection Letter.
On receiving the original of the Letter of Acceptance is it possibly to apply for the visa.
The candidates should not send any paper documents until they are explicitly asked to do so.
Once admitted, students have to forward the originals of the documents within the two weeks period.
Apart from the Letter of Acceptance to the EDEEM Program the selected candidates will receive the admission documents from the University where the student is going to spend the first semester.
In several cases, this might facilitate visa procedures. Students might need to contact the concrete university before the arrival, for example, for the accommodation inquires.
IMPORTANT! Visa Issue might take long time, depending on the country of origin and your status. Therefore, we strongly advise you to make the application for visa as soon as you receive your Letter of Acceptance (the Original).
Visa requests should be forwarded to the Consulate of the country where the student will spend the first semester.
We ask student to upload the visa on your personal page as soon as it is issued.
