Selection Stages

The competition has two stages of selection. The first stage is the submission of required documents via online application form. Applications will be evaluated by the selection committee and only the appropriate candidates will be invited to the second stage – the interview with the selection committee. Students who pass the second stage will be nominated to partner universities and will be able to start application procedures for studies abroad.

Students can win scholarships offered by the Japanese government or universities or the VMU Mobility Scholarship (500EUR per month).

Students who are not granted a VMU exchange scholarship may travel abroad to study at the university of their choice using their own personal funds.
