The Selection Committee will base its works on a culture of evidence and will assess merit for admission and access to any of the STG support opportunities as viewed in the context of the applicant’s academic and personal circumstances.

The applicants must include relevant information on any of the components of the selection criteria in the Curriculum vitae and the Statement of purpose. Shortlisted candidates will have the opportunity to expand on their suitability for admission upon specific request from the Selection Committee.

The selection process takes place in three consecutive stages:

Stage I: Pre-screening

At the first stage, the candidatures are pre-screened for technical compliance. Only the complete files progress to the second stage.

Stage II: Screening and selection

The second stage covers the comparative review of the candidates’ files. The Selection Committee reserves the right to request additional information and/or documentation as well as to solicit an interview with the candidates whose assessment require further clarification. In such case, the candidates will be informed on the period for submitting the required items as well as all relevant data on the interview.

Stage III: Post-selection procedures

Upon the completion of comparative review, the Selection Committee will deliver their decision on admission.

Depending on the outcome of the selection procedure, the STG Admissions Officer may provide the candidate with:

▪      a place offer for the beneficiaries of one of the STG support opportunities,

▪      a provisional place offer whose validation is contingent on completion of financial requirements,

▪      a conditional place offer (final or provisional) whose validation is contingent on completion of degree requirements, or

▪      a rejection letter.

The selected candidates must confirm acceptance of their offer and complete the financial requirements (if applicable) within a 30-day period upon receipt of the written notification from the STG Admissions Officer.
