GLOCAL III - a night to remember

The third cohort of GLOCAL students have arrived in Glasgow and are now deep into their first semester.

On the evening of Thursday 19th September 2019, in the elegant surroundings of Glasgow City Chambers, the city held a civic reception to welcome all 7 classes of the University of Glasgow's Erasmus Mundus International Masters students.

A night to remember!

GLOCAL II funding bid successful

GLOCAL re-funding bid is successful!

GLOCAL II is Go!

 

Fantastic news from the EACEA yesterday that our bid for the next tranche of funding for GLOCAL has been approved.  This second round will provide scholarships for about 25 students each year for four years, with the first intake in September 2020.  And the new programme is bigger, better and even more global, including as it does three new partners - Uppsala University in Sweden, Kyoto University in Japan and Universidad de Los Andes in Bogota, Colombia. 

We are really excited about the opportunities this new programme offers to our students, and are extremely grateful to the two cohorts currently undertaking GLOCAL I  for the challenges and inspiration they have provided thus far.  At GLOCAL we believe in co-creation, and our students have played a critical role in shaping our thinking.

 

Huge thanks also to all of our Partners and Associate Partners around the globe - established and new - for their input.  It is wonderful, and enormously rewarding, to be working with such a talented, committed and cooperative group of colleagues from across the world.  International cooperation, despite what our political classes might argue, remains a fundamentally good thing.

We can now look forward to the graduation of the very first cohort of GLOCAL students in November, secure in the knowledge that there will be at least six more cohorts to come.


GLOCAL Consortium meeting Barcelona 2019

GLOCAL Consortium gathers in Barcelona

The GLOCAL Consortium partners are currently meeting in Barcelona (21-22 March 2019) for the final deliberations over the applications for the Erasmus Mundus Scholarships for entry in 2019.

There will also be a staff-student liaison meeting with the 2018 cohort.

Levels of interest in GLOCAL are reflected in the fact that numbers of applications have increased year on year. This year we've received a total of 976 applications - the highest number yet.

The selection committee assesses each scholarship application according to the following criteria:

Academic merit (e.g. relevance and level of academic qualifications) – 30%

Supporting personal statement – 40%

Quality of (academic) references – 10%

Other (e.g. relevant research/professional experiences/interests) – 20%

All applicants will receive an email about the outcome of their application by April 3rd at the latest. PLEASE NOTE: Candidates who do not secure a scholarship and who wish to appeal the decision of the scholarship selection committee must do so in writing by email within 2 weeks (14 days) from the point of notification by the GLOCAL Consortium of their failure to win a scholarship.

Good luck to everyone who applied!
