The Consortium Committee Selection Board will select the students to be awarded with an Erasmus Mundus scholarship based on the list compiled and in accordance with Erasmus Mundus guidelines.

After approving the Selection Board’s decision the Consortium Committee immediately informs The Univeristy of Stavanger admissions office of the ranking list compiled.
Successful applicants will receive notification of acceptance from The University of Stavanger as well as a Letter of Acceptance from the MUNDUSFAMILY Consortium Committee. The notification of acceptance contains a deadline by which the applicant must register for the programme.
If this deadline is not met, the notification of acceptance will be null and void. If a number of places is still available after the deadline for registration expired, a corresponding number of applicants, who did not initially receive notification of acceptance, will be admitted according to the ranking order achieved.

Applicants who are not accepted will receive a notification of rejection together with a statement of the right to appeal.
