Before starting, verify your eligibility to the course, to the scholarships and the selection criteria.
In order to apply for the EMJMD MIR you will need to upload the required documents listed below and to complete an online application form.
It is important that you prepare your application well in advance and submit your application several weeks before the deadline if possible. This way, if one or more uploaded file(s) is/are judged as “incorrect” and is/are rejected, you may be given the possibility to updated them. On the contrary, if you have submitted your application on the deadline, and in case of incorrect files, your application will be rejected directly. Please note during the application period, the EMJMD MIR pedagogical secretariat answers questions and provides support to applicants at the following address: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please read the eCandidat Application Manual and prepare the following documents that you will have to upload on the online application platform:
- Copy of valid international passport indicating the nationality (a valid national identity document may be accepted if you do not yet have a passport). If the passport/national identity card does not provide an English, French, Italian or Spanish translation, an official English translation must be provided.
- Copies of academic degrees of all university studies, i.e. Bachelor, Master or equivalent. If you are in the process of obtaining your degree, you must provide an official written statement from your current institution indicating you are in the process of graduating, the name of the diploma and the provisional date of graduation.
- If the originals are not in English or French, you must provide official English translation of academic degrees of all university studies.
- Copy of diploma supplements and transcripts stating courses and scores obtained per course. All the diploma supplements must be grouped in a single file. If the diploma supplements are not in English or French you must provide an official English translation of diploma supplements.

The test certificate must not be older than 3 years.
- Please note it is unnecessary to provide another test certificate as it will be rejected.
- Nationals of countries where English is an official language are exempted of providing a proof of English level.
- If the language of instruction of your studies is English, instead of providing one of the above listed document, you can upload an official written certificate from the last degree-awarding institution that states the program was taught entirely in English (only if you have graduated from this institution less than 3 years ago when submitting your application). Important: please note this attestation will count for a B2 level in English. Should you have a C1 or C2 level in English we recommend you provide on your application one of the accepted English test certificates in order for your actual level of English to be taken into account.
