Candidate’s motivation for the chosen programme: there is no model for this document. Please check on the page of the Host University on this website in order to know if the English version of this document is mandatory or recommended. The English version migh be required in case of appeal of the candidate.

Please check on the page of the Host University of this website in order to know if the English version of this document is mandatory or recommended. The English version migh be required in case of appeal of the candidate.

 

Letter of support by Home University: there is no model for this document, it might be addressed to the Host University you're applying for, it has to be on headed paper of the University and to be signed by a professor of the Department/Faculty interested in the mobility programme you apply for or by an administrative officer for administrative staff mobility. This document is very important for the Sandwich doctorate mobilities, as the aim of the project is also to create academic and institutional bonds between the Home and Host universities. For this reason, it is recommended that the candidates present both a letter signed by the thesis supervisor, or by the Director of the Doctoral course (in order to certify the academic support) and a letter signed by the director of the Faculty/Department or by the International Relations Office, in order to certify the institutional support. It is not mandatory to present both letters, if the candidate only manages to obtain one, please consider that the most important is the one of the thesis supervisor, or of the Director of the Doctoral course.

How to obtain a letter of support from a European University:

- Send all the necessary information by e-mail in order to evaluate the interest of your proposal: CV, list of publications, study/research project, etc.;

- This process might take a long time: be patient and wait, it does not make any difference if you apply for the scholarship on the first or on the last day of the call;

- Please consider the opportunity that the professor might not be interested in your proposal or that your CV is not adequate.
