The motivation letter must include the following information:
Reasons for choosing IPCVai as field of interest
Reasons for choosing IPCVai as study program
Max. length: 1000 words
The reference letters should be provided by academic/scientific persons (teachers, researchers, internship supervisors employees, etc.) who are familiar with the applicant’s performance as well as character and who have positive remarks to make. The referees should attest also the adequacy of applicant’s background with the IPCVai Master’s program.
The reference letter should consist of 1-2 pages written in English, including the referee’s signature, presented on institutional headed paper and bearing an institutional stamp/seal.
Please note that it is your responsibility to inform your referees of the procedure set by the e-form.
In the referees section of the e-form, you have to write e-mails of your 2 referents. After you validate this information, the e-form sends an automatic e-mail to your referees. The e-mail sent includes the link where the reference letter has to be uploaded. As this is a confidential document, you are not allowed to upload the reference letter yourself to the application, but your referees will have to follow the instructions given in our e-mail. Your referees have to check their mailbox (the e-mail might be redirected to the SPAM folder, be aware of that problem).
If your referees followed the instructions properly, you will be able to see a green V instead of the read X in the attachment list on your e-form.
ATTENTION! Please be very careful when filling the information on your referees in the e-form, as the referees section will be locked after you validate it, and you won’t be able to modify it. The automatic e-mail can be sent only once. In case of a spelling mistake, your referee will not receive the e-mail and cannot upload his/her reference letter.
(1) First check the referee’s email address, given in the reference section. If it’s incorrect, your referee could not receive the link to upload the reference letter (Due to confidentiality reasons, you are not allowed to correct any information regarding referees in the application, this section is automatically locked once this page of the e-form is validated.)
(2) If the email address registered on the e-form is correct, please ask your referee to double check their “spam” folder, as the automatic eMundus email might have been redirected there.
Please note that the e-mail is sent automatically by the e-form and cannot be sent a second time.
Therefore, first please ask your referee to check their “spam” folder first.
If they still cannot access the eMundus email, please ask your referee to confirm by an email to firstname.lastname@example.org that they did not receive any email from us.
Please note that accounts of non-selected applicants have been due to limitation of storage capacity. You need to activate a new account preferably with different login and password. However, you can use the same e-mail address.
First complete 100% of the e-form, that is:
you filled all the parts of the e-form
you attached all required documents (see checklist)
your referees submitted their reference letters (if relevant).
Afterwards, make sure that:
you clicked on the “submit” button
you received a confirmation email that your application has been submitted.
In the case you received NO e-mail and you are sure all previous steps have been done, please contact email@example.com (preferably with a screenshot).
It is definitively not necessary to send your application via post or electronic mail. However, you might be required to submit the hard copies later, so keep them anyway.
