How is your application evaluated ?
Completed applications are submitted by the secretariat to the Admissions Board. The Board produces a list of candidates to interview.
The Admissions Board carries out skype interviews with each shortlisted applicant. Some interviews are held in person in the USA and in China.
The Admissions Board establishes a ranking, both for admission and scholarships/grants.
E-mails are sent to applicants accordingly.
A panel of professors evaluates each application according to several criteria:
Degree marks and university of origin
Motivation, professional and personal career objectives
Experience in the vine and/or wine sector
Academic and/or professional referees
At least two professors (one in viticulture and one in Enology) evaluate each application. A global score out of 300 is awarded.
All the applicants with a score > 200 are invited to an interview by Skype or face to face (for USA and China).
During the interview (15 minutes maximum), a panel of at least two members of the EMaVE consortium evaluates the English level, the motivation, knowledge and communication skills of each selected applicant.
Then candidates are requested to confirm their acceptance and pay a deposit of part of the fees.
