Admission Criteria

Language requirements

Excellent proficiency in English is required. As the classes are taught in English, candidates must meet the required standards…

  • IELTS (Academic Test): 6.5 (with no score below 6)
  • TOEFL: Paper-based 580 / Computer-based 237 / Internet-based 93
  • Certificate of Advanced English: B/C
  • Certificate of Proficiency in English: B/C

The test must have been completed no more than two years before the course starts. Please note that Primary and Secondary Education certificates or 1-year exchange programme documentation are not accepted as English certificates.

Selection process

The selection campaign is in two rounds.

The 1st round is a preselection stage. Applications are reviewed and ranked according to the following criteria: academic grades, motivation, references and English proficiency.

In case your application is among the best ranked and thus selected for the second selection round, you will be contacted by the Selection Committee for a final face-to-face interview through the Internet.

Candidates applying for an Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degree scholarship: interviews will be performed between the last week of January and the first week of February; Candidates applying under a self-funding scheme: interviews will be performed during March/April.

Applicants’ Appeals

All the applicants have the right to appeal the decision of the Selection Committee regarding their eligibility to the programme. Appeals (only duly signed letters will be taken into consideration) can be submitted by email as pdf attachments to the Neurasmus Coordination Office’s email; always within 1 week after publication of the selection results.


Official application results for the admission exercise are expected to be available in May. Applicants will be notified of the application results by email once it is available. Results will NOT be released through any telephone enquiries.

The Neurasmus Selection is a fair competitive process. Due to the limited places available and the high number of applications, the Selection Committee has to be very selective. However, in case of non-selection and if you have grounds to believe that your application file, although complete, has not been processed through the selection procedure, you may ask for further details by writing directly to the Neurasmus Head Office:
