Frequently Asked Questions

Q.I am unfamiliar with the Enic-Naric statement of compatibility mentioned in the application form and how to obtain it for my region. Please advise.

A. Your university may well be able to help you with the process, but one place to start is here: http://www.enic-naric.net/individual-wishing-to-studywork-abroad.aspx. The UK enic-naric system (http://www.naric.org.uk/naric/Individuals/Default.aspx) is transparent and quick, and a statement from there will be recognized by the Global-MINDS program.

Q. What Bachelor (or equivalent) degree do I need to be eligible for the Global-MINDS Master Degree Programme? 

A. The programme is designed for people with a Bachelor (or equivalent) degree in Psychology. In this way, graduates can use the professional title of “Psychologist,” which requires both a Bachelor and Master in Psychology in most places.

Q. When will the application be open, when will the deadline be, and when will decisions be made?

A. Applications opened 20 December, 2016, and will be open until 20 March, 2017. Final decisions should be made by 15 April, 2017.

Q. Will the scholarship application be separate from the program application?

A. Applicants interested in being considered for a scholarship should indicate that on their application form. Scholarships will then be awarded on the basis of merit and eligibility rather than need. Those who have received an EMJMD scholarship previously are not eligible.

Q. What are the language requirements?

A. We expect that English language proficiency of at least the equivalent of a high B2 level on the CEFR (Common European Framework of Reference for Languages) will be required, see the application page.

Q. What if I am only going to finish my Bachelor (or equivalent) degree in the Spring of 2017? Can I apply for the Global-MINDS Joint Master Degree Program without my final diploma?

A. Applications by students who have not completed their Bachelor (or equivalent) degree will be accepted, when proof of enrollment and a transcript of courses completed through the fall semester of 2016 is included. Applicants who receive a sufficiently high evaluation will be admitted to the program conditional upon their successful completion of the Bachelor (or equivalent) degree before enrolling in Global-MINDS.

Q. Is there an age limit for the program or the scholarships?

A. There is no age limit for applying for the Global-MINDS programme or scholarships.
