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 for students starting Fall 2019 will open in the fall of 2018 and close early in 2019.

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. Can I apply for the Global-MINDS Joint Master Degree Program without my final diploma?

A. Applications from people 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 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, and presentation of their diploma before enrolling in Global-MINDS. The official diploma is required before being able to enroll, not only the completion of required credits.

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.
