Erasmus Mundus Scholarship for Master Course in Wine

Applications for The Erasmus Mundus scholarship for the International Vintage Master course conducted in three countries with the foundation  work in France, may be submitted till November 15, 2009 for the course commencing next September, according to the information received from the college.

The course is being  reconducted as a Master of excellence by the European Commission for the next 5 years, thus still offering huge scholarships for students accepted, writes Catherin Pellier who looks after the international students admission.

The Indian students who want to make wine as their profession and meet the basic requirements are encouraged to download the application form on their website, where all the information about content and organization of the course is available.

Please note the main pre-requisites:

* Applicants must have completed a higher education degree in science, such as :a B.Sc. (a 4-year course in the fields of biology, agronomy, chemistry, industry, food processing, economic sciences etc.)
* Applicants must demonstrate interest for the wine profession.
* A good level of English and French is mandatory.

The downloaded form can be filled in and sent along with the documents required, no later than November 15th 2009, for enrolment in September 2010 to Catherine Pellier. This would allow you to participate into the selection for the Erasmus Mundus scholarship.

In case you wish to apply to the International Vintage Master, without being candidate to the Erasmus Mundus scholarship, deadline would be 31st January 2010; this will allow for applying to a special scholarship from their local authority “Region des Pays de la Loire” (a one year scholarship of approx. €3500) . Final deadline for applying without any scholarship programme is 15th April 2010.

In the meantime, one is encouraged to learn French intensively, so that the proficiency level required is achieved before the course begins.

The Erasmus Mundus Programme is a European co-operation and mobility programme in the field of higher education. It aims to enhance the quality of European education and to promote intercultural understanding through co-operation with 'third countries'.

'Third countries' are those countries which are not European Union (EU) Member States, EEA-EFTA countries (Iceland, Lichtenstein, and Norway), or EU applicant countries (presently Croatia, Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia (FYROM)). Turkey is eligible for the academic year 2009/2010.

Following are the criteria for Erasmus Mundus Scholarship applicants as required:

* Excellent first degree (a minimum of a bachelor degree with honours or the equivalent) with excellent grades and/or other study results
* Verified excellent quality of the institution where the first degree was obtained
* Strongly convincing letter of motivation
* Strongly convincing recommendation by an academic and/or professional body
* Clear idea of research to be carried out and submitted as a thesis proposal
* Professional experience (minimum one year full time working experience)
* Internationally recognised English proficiency certificate equivalent to a TOEFL score of 550/213/79-80 or an IELTS score of 6.0.
