General criteria for all types of mobility:

 

This project only concerns Brazilian applicants:

  • Must be a national of Brazil
  • Must have sufficient knowledge of the language of the courses or of one of the languages currently spoken in the hosting countries.
     
  • Must have NOT benefited from a previous scholarship for the same type of mobility under a project under the EMA2-STRAND1.

In order to be eligible, the study period abroad must be considered as an integral part of the study programme at home university and must not lead to any extension of the normal period of the curriculum at the home institution. An exchange mobility occurring after the obtaining of the diploma is not eligible. The student must be registered at his home university during all the period of exchange mobility. The credits obtained during the exchange mobility are recognized by the home HEI as a part of the student’s curriculum.

 

Specific criteria for each type of mobility:

  • Undergraduate students
    They must have successfully completed at least one year of studies in their home institution.
  • Doctorate (mobility) students
    They must be enrolled in a doctorate programme in a Brazilian Higher Education Institution.

  • Academic and Administrative staff

It is noteworthy to mention that in addition to these criteria there may be other defined internally by each partner institution of the project, so applicants must make sure to ask the contact person of the institution about the specific eligibility criteria established either in their home institution (if applicable) or in the host institution(s) which they intend to apply to.
