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. What is the application calendar for the 2021 cohort?

A. The application calendar is available on the application page.

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

A. Unfortunately there are no EMJMD scholarships available for the 2021 cohort. We do not know if there will be EMJMD scholarships available in future years. Information about other scholarship options is available on the External Scholarships page.

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 programme?

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

Q. Are there certain countries that are eligible (or not) for the programme?

A. People from all countries are eligible for the programme. The specific rules regarding the application fees for people from different countries are available on the Cost and Funding page.

Q. What counts as a valid proof of residence?

A. Valid forms of proof of current residence include a letter from an employer, university, or city government attesting that the applicant lives in that location. A statement of enrolment at a physical university is also a valid proof of residence. In addition, any recent address registration form (filed with a governmental authority) is acceptable. If the original document is not in English, a certified English translation is required.
