Definition of Erasmus+ Programme and Partner Countries (PDF)
- Students whose nationality is one of the Erasmus+ Programme countries count as Programme country students and should apply as a Programme country applicant.
- Students whose nationality is one of the Erasmus+ Partner countries and who are not residents nor have carried out their main activity (studies, training or work) for more than a total of 12 months over the last five years in a Programme country/countries are considered as Partner country students. The five year reference period for this 12 month rule is calculated backwards from the submission deadline (i.e. the 5 year period from 6th January 2018 to 6th January 2023). Apply as a Partner country applicant.
- Students whose nationality is one of the Erasmus+ Partner countries who do NOT fulfil the Partner country criteria defined above (12 month rule) count as Programme country students and should apply using the Programme country application form.
- Example: an Albanian student who lived in Germany for 13 months, 3 years before 6th January 2023 should apply as a Programme country student; a Mexican student who has been living in Spain for 11 months at 6th January 2023 (and never before in the 5 year period) should apply as a Partner country student.
GLOCAL has 7 study tracks to choose from
- You MUST specify your choice of study track on application.

If you have questions regarding the online application system or University of Glasgow admissions criteria, please get in touch with the Postgraduate Admissions team at [email protected].
All applications must have the following:
- Degree certificate (and an official translation into English). If a candidate has already completed a second degree/masters, they must still upload evidence of their first degree/bachelors when making their application. Students who have not yet completed their degree can also apply. Applicants must provide academic transcripts to date. Offers of a place on the programme will be conditional pending receipt of the final degree result. Applications will be considered for scholarship, but any offer of a scholarship will also be conditional until the final degree result is confirmed. See ‘Note on conditional offers’ below.
Official academic transcript(s) (and an official translation into English), showing full details of subjects studied and grades/marks obtained.
Two supporting reference letters on headed paper.
- References must be dated within 24 months from the date of submission of the application
- They must be on institutional headed paper or with an official stamp. If neither are available a reference can be submitted directly to [email protected] from the referee’s institutional email address. References will not be accepted from a personal email address.
- References must be signed with an electronic or wet-ink signature. A typed name is not sufficient
- At least one of the two references should be an academic reference. One may be a professional reference where it is not possible to obtain two academic references.
English language proficiency. In cases where it is not possible to provide proof of language qualification at this stage, applications will still be accepted but any offer of a place on the programme or of a scholarship will be conditional until the test result is received. See ‘Note on conditional offers’ below. For further information on English language proficiency requirements and exceptions, please refer to the section ‘English Language Entry Requirements’ here.
A scan of the photo page of your passport.
- CV (Europass format preferred, but not mandatory).
Separate personal statement (for self-funded applicants only).
Please note, in order to be considered for a scholarship for entry in September 2023, you MUST have submitted ALL of the above documents by 6th January 2023. If your application status is ‘holding for documents’ then you will NOT be considered for a scholarship unless you submit the required documents by 6th January 2023.
The only exception to this is English language proficiency certificates, final degree certificates and transcripts where an applicant is still currently studying.
Note on Conditional offers:
If you are completing the final year of your first degree or you have yet to provide the required evidence of proficiency in English, your application for entry will be considered but you will not receive an Unconditional offer of a place on the programme until we have received your final degree and/or English language test results.
In such cases you may be made a Conditional offer on finishing your degree at the required grade and/or obtaining the required English language test results.
You will not be able to enrol on the GLOCAL programme until all required documents have been received and you have accepted an Unconditional offer.
