Selection procedure

Applications will be scored according to the following categories:

  • Domain of the bachelor : Points will be assigned proportional to the percentage of Computer Science credits in the curriculum.
  • Academic results : This will be calculated as the weighted average of the marks in the different subjects.
  • Other studies : A second bachelor or master will score depending on the obtained credits in computer science. Extra-curricular courses taken will be scored based on lecturing hours taking.
  • Professional experience : Points will be given by year of work on IT or BI position (regarding the position held and the topic).
  • Cover letter : Points will be assigned based on the following categories: organisation, sequencing, content, vocabulary and word choice, critical thinking, originality and creativity, accuracy of facts.
  • Reference letters : Points will be assigned based on the approval, comments and reputation of the referees, as testified by the reference letters and the referees’ H-factor.


A final ranked list of candidates, based on all obtained points, will thus be produced. A main list containing the top applications will be submitted to the European Commission for scholarship approval. A reserved list is also produced.
