FIPDes application calendar

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the FIPDes academic year 2020-2021 has been postponed to 2021-2022. The candidates selected for 2020-2021 will start their academic year in September 2021. There will be no selection this year (2020-2021). The next round for application will open in October 2021 (for a start in September 2022).

Admission rules and time-frame :

First round : CLOSED

  • online application: before January 20th, 2020, 12:00 (noon, CET)
  • eligibility check: January-February, 2020
  • selection step: end of March 2020

Students candidating for the first round have the possibility to apply for Erasmus Mundus scholarships.

Second round: NOT OPEN

  • The second round might not open this year. Check our website regularly.
  • No Erasmus Mundus scholarships for the second round.

There is just one selection procedure for both years of FIPDes. When selected, students are admitted to first year (=M1) and the second year (=M2), that are inseparable – under the condition of passing all the exams from the first year. Students thus cannot be directly admitted to the FIPDes M2 without the interrelated FIPDes M1.

International mobility to at least 2 out of the 4 FIPDes European High Education Institutions is compulsory.

"The EMJMD study period must take place in at least two of the Programme Countries represented in the Cosortium (i.e. at least two mobility periods for all students, different from the country of residence of the student)."
