See the University of Glasgow information on its requirements regarding English tests, here.
Your references form a significant part of your application and it is important that they are submitted according to the required criteria.
GLOCAL applications require two supporting reference letters on official headed paper. These should typically be academic references but in cases where this is not possible then a reference from a current employer may be accepted instead.
References should be dated within the last 12 months, written on official letter headed paper and must include the referee’s signature or official stamp. Unofficial references will not be accepted.
If your referee prefers their reference to remain confidential, they can email the reference to firstname.lastname@example.org provided the email is from your referee’s professional email account and contains their full employee name and address.
We will not accept references sent from personal email addresses or via a third party.
If you’re an international applicant, you are exempt from the visa English language requirement ONLY if:
- you are a national of a majority English-speaking country as defined by the UKVI; or
- you hold a degree from a UKVI-approved majority English-speaking country.
All other international students must provide proof of English proficiency at the required level. See the University website for full information:
Please note that we cannot accept any applications by email, nor can we accept any application documents via email. All applications and all supporting documents must be submitted via the University of Glasgow’s online application portal.
There are two parts to how your application for GLOCAL is handled.
a. Your application for entry onto the programme is handled by the University of Glasgow’s Admissions office. The Admissions office will examine your application and decide whether to make an offer of entry to the programme.
b. Your application for the Erasmus Mundus Scholarship is handled separately, by the GLOCAL Consortium partners. All applications which are deemed by the University of Glasgow’s Admissions Office to have met the requirements to be awarded a conditional or unconditional offer of entry to the programme are reviewed and scored by GLOCAL staff at University of Glasgow and at the Consortium partner universities, according to the published selection criteria. This is a very thorough process in which all applications are scored by two academic members of staff in a first round of reviews, followed by the top scoring applicants being reviewed by all seven GLOCAL partner institutions and discussed at a final scholarship selection meeting. This results in a ranked list, from which the Erasmus Mundus scholarships are awarded.
Please note that no scholarship application results will be released until the official results release date specified in the selection timeline here and we are unable to provide detailed feedback or ranking positions.
You make your application to both the programme and the Erasmus Mundus scholarship as one application through the University of Glasgow’s online application system. You do not have to make separate applications for the programme and the scholarship.
No, you do not need to make separate applications. You make your application to both the programme and the Erasmus Mundus scholarship as one application through the University of Glasgow’s online application system.
The GLOCAL programme is open to a large variety of academic backgrounds.
You should read this information carefully before deciding to apply. It is then up to you to make the case in the Personal Statement section of the Erasmus Mundus Scholarship application form that your knowledge and experience fit with what we do.
