The 5-year residence period for this 12-months rule is calculated backward as from the submission deadline of applying for the EMJMD student scholarship. If you cannot provide this document, you will be considered as a program country candidate.

      • The referees can either upload the recommendation letter themselves.
      • Or send it by email to emundus.master@fresnel.fr
    3. When done, you will see in the application software that we have received the recommendation letter, but you will not be able to see the document itself.
    4. The letters upload by yourselves or sent by you to emundus.master@fresnel.fr will be considered as "Other references" documents. If those are the only ones present in your application, they will not be sufficient to validate your application.
