Selection procedure

For each application: 
  • Vinifera Euromaster secretariat checks if applications are acceptable (forms correctly filled out, all required documents available, admission requirements fulfilled...). Applicants may be contacted with queries during this pre-selection phase.
  • Completed applications are submitted by the secretariat to the Admissions Board of the Consortium, as soon as each application form is validated.  The Board produces a list of candidates to interview and candidates are contacted before the date of interviews.
  • The Admissions Board carries out skype interviews with each shortlisted applicant on the dates that have been set.  Some interviews are held in person in the USA and in China.
  • The Admissions Board establishes a ranking, both for admission and grants.
  • The Secretariat is responsible for managing the two main lists (and related reserve lists) according to effective confirmation of registrations. 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 / 300 is defined.

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.
Candidates are then informed if they have been offered a place with scholarship (at the moment this would only be a partial scholarship from the consortium), a place without scholarship, a place on the reserve list, or if they have not been placed on the reserve list.
According to each of these options candidates are requested to confirm their acceptance and pay a deposit of part of the fees.
