Coordination will only conduct an interview (via Skype or face-to-face) if there is any doubt as to the general profile of some candidates. In the absence of an interview, the programme coordination classifies the candidate’s profile by considering not only the solidity of the previous set of criteria, but also the submitted motivation letter (in which each candidate should emphasize their interest in the programme) and the viability of the theme project that the candidate intends to develop.
