Erasmus+ Scholarship Applications are now open for the 2018-2020 intake of the Wintour Master. These scholarships are designed to cover some of the expenses students incur throughout the entire duration of the WINTOUR course, which is 2 years.
The Erasmus Mundus Master on Wine Tourism Innovation (WINTOUR) combines a large expertise in Tourism and Oenology of three universities and regions: Rovira I Virgili University (URV – Tarragona, Spain), University of Bordeaux (UB, France), and University of Porto (UP, Portugal).
The language of instruction of the WINTOUR master is English. Other language skills/certificates are not compulsory. However, selection committee evaluates positively that candidates have other languages skills (such as Spanish, French or Portuguese, the languages of the countries where the course takes place). WINTOUR students are given the opportunity to study local languages during the first three semesters).
- Students are entitled to apply to only one of the two categories of scholarships at a time. Students with double nationality (of a Programme or Partner country) must choose the nationality under which they submit their scholarship application;
- WINTOUR does expect that candidates have a good command of the English language that enables them to communicate well at an academic level. The level of English proficiency should be at least B2, using the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages scale. English skills must be documented with the qualification of a recent English test (Cambridge ESOL, IELTS or TOEFL are accepted);
- Candidates must have a completed university bachelor and/or master’s degree/s (minimum 180 ECTS)in the fields of Social Sciences (e.g. Tourism, Economics, Business Management/Administration, Marketing); Natural and Experimental Sciences (e.g. Oenology/Viticulture, Agronomic/Agricultural Engineering, Biotechnology, Food Technology); or Humanities (e.g. Languages, International Relations), or closely related subjects;
- Candidates must present a recent English language certificate, at least a B2 level according to the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (official certifications from Cambridge, IELTS or TOEFL are accepted);
- Moreover, personal motivation, prior work experience in the field, as well as obvious linguistic skills (preferably, in the languages of the organizing universities), will be crucial elements in the selection process.
The scholarships awarded to cover the students’ participation costs (including tuition fees, full insurance coverage and any other mandatory costs related to the students’ participation in the course), a yearly contribution to student travel and installation costs and a monthly subsistence allowance for the entire duration of the EMJMD study programme.
