Student selection procedure (Trans.)
The procedure of students’ selection is oriented to quality and successful study fulfilment. Students’ selection involves a rigorous evaluation of knowledge, skills, and motivational aspects. The process of selection includes the presentation of the CV and an interview (by Skype or similar) with the candidate where the merits are assessed. Before the interview, the selection committee analyses the Undergraduate Degree (i.e., Bachelor degree) to assess its validity to study the Master. According to the rules of the WOP-P Consortium, it is required that all of the four European partner Universities consider valid the University Undergraduate Degree of the candidates according to the regulations of the country of each partner University. Under these circumstances, if one or more partner country Universities of the WOP-P Consortium do not consider as valid the University Undergraduate Degree of the candidate, the candidacy will not be considered valid for the Consortium Grants and for the acceptance in the WOP-P Master.
In addition, there will be a pre-selection stage in which some candidates could be screened-out based on the documentation received and the complete fulfilment of the procedure.
In order to assess their English language level, the candidate may be tested by an external language service company. By applying, the candidate would be expressing their consent to transfer their contact information data to this company. The test would be done online (by Skype or similar).
Because of the complexity of the selection process of candidates, the steps corresponding to the selection process should be implemented in parallel. Thus, interviewing candidates does not assure they fulfil the compulsory requirements of the WOP-P Master (e.g., Psychology Diploma).
Therefore, in every European institution, the partner coordinator and assessors interview the candidates and carry out the exam or tests to assess previous knowledge and skills related to the discipline. Afterwards, the partner coordinator establishes a ranking considering applicant’s merits and formulates a proposal of the candidates to be accepted by the WOP Coordinating and Selection Committees. Please, consider that the interview is an important part of the selection process. If the interviewer does not receive any answer from the student candidate to schedule the interview in due time, the candidacy will be withdrawn from the process. (please, check your email regularly, spam box also).
The WOP Coordinating Committee will decide the Mobility scheme of students. The decision will be based on the students’ preferences; the need to obtain a balanced distribution among partner institutions; and the students’ fluency in the languages used in WOP programme (English, Italian, Portuguese and Spanish).
