I already have an MSc degree, or I’m following an MSc course at the moment. Is it still possible to apply to this programme?

Yes, students holding a MSc. degree can still apply for IMAE.

I haven’t completed my bachelor degree. May I apply for IMAE?

Yes. During the application you must select "YES" on the compulsory subheading “Application based on subparagraph d" on the section “Higher Education Qualification” and justify in detail why you haven’t completed the degree yet, giving your expected graduation date. The selection board will decide whether to process your application or not.

Should my transcript of records be translated according to the ECTS grading scale?

Your transcript of records must be understandable (translated into English) and with an explanation of the system used (min and max score, passing rules, rank-order with other students and so on). If the system used in your university is very different from the European standard system, please ask your admissions office to write a letter of explanation or to convert your transcript into the ECTS grading scale.

I graduated in a different field than Ecology. May I apply for IMAE?

Yes, of course you can apply! The IMAE selection board will assess carefully the personal project of each applicant and its suitability. If your participation seems to be relevant, and if our programme sounds as if it will be helpful in the realization of your project, you could be enrolled.

During the application process, you will find, at the platform, a section called “Higher Education Qualification” with a compulsory subheading “Application based on subparagraph d)”. Click "YES" if your degree is not related to any field of Biology or Ecology.
