Erasmus GLODEP Program Requirements

While the program is open to applicants from diverse disciplinary backgrounds, knowledge, and
experience, a suitable applicant typically has: excellent academic results in relevant degree
(e.g. development studies, economics, geography, international relations, and sociology); strong
interest in international development with aspirations to work in the area related to development
policy; very good command of English. As our program is highly competitive (in 2018 we
received more than 1500 applications), please consider whether your profile fits into the above
characteristics before you apply. The Admission Committee looks at the overall profile of the
applicant, so a degree in a less relevant discipline may be good enough if you have excelled in
development courses and your extra-curricular activities or working experience are clearly
linked to development.
The call for the applications for the 2019–2021 intake is open from 1st November 2018 until
30th April 2019 (23:59 CET). However, if you want to apply for a scholarship, you must do that

the scholarship (missing or inadequate), the application is eligible for the program but
ineligible for the scholarship. In this case, the application will be assessed by the
Admission Committee for the program, but the applicant cannot be offered the
scholarship if admitted to the program.
