Time lines

Candidates for the 2015 edition of the program must apply before January 16 2015. After telephone (or skype) interviews, a pre-selection of candidates may be invited to come to Europe, to meet potential PhD supervisors at their respective MOVE-AGE Home Institutes. Final admission evaluation will be done by the Board of Education, consisting of representatives of the three MOVE-AGE institutes. A list of selected students eligible for admission will be compiled before February 28 2015. Thereafter formal approval of the selection and eligibility in terms of visa-application will take until April of that year. Only in the case of a formal approval of the student-selection by the European Commission, “Candidate Agreements” will be signed towards the beginning of May. After that, admitted PhD Candidates have another 3 months to accommodate immigration and legal aspects concerning the immigration. The appointments start October 2014.
