I have received notification that I am on the reserve list, what now?

Congratulations, this means that you have been accepted on the MIR Masters programme and we look forward to welcoming you! The reserve list is created for the cases where a selected student with an EMJMD scholarship cannot for unforeseen reasons (eg health, family etc) follow the MIR programme. In this case they will have to give up their scholarship liberating a scholarship to be taken by a candidate on the reserve list. It is important that you look where you rank on the reserve list. Please refer to the email sent to you by the MIR coordinator in order to identify your ranking score. The smaller the ranking score the higher the possibilities are that you will be eventually offered the EMJMD scholarship. For example if you are ranked 1 this means the 1st existing scholarship holder giving up their scholarship their place will be offered to you, if you are ranked 40 it means that 40 people will be offered, and will have to reject the offer before it is proposed to you.
