Applicants must hold a bachelor degree (or any nationally recognized first cycle degree equivalent to 180 ECTS). Regarding the different professional opportunities in the field of cultural landscapes and heritage management, applicants can hold a bachelor diploma in Humanities, Planning, Urbanism, Architecture, Law, Natural sciences, Social Sciences, Chemistry, Tourism, Physics, Engineering, Design, and Art.
Bachelor students having already obtained at least 150 ECTS may apply but they will be admitted only if they are successful before the summer break.
The Selection Committee will assess and evaluate application forms according to the following criteria: quality and adequacy of candidates’ academic background, motivation, previous professional experience (if applicable), consistency and relevance of the professional project, ability to work with other people in order to learn together. Special attention will be paid to the letter of motivation in which all criteria will have to be clearly identified.
This is a two-stage assessment procedure. Each eligible application is first evaluated by 12 people: 2 academics from each member institution of the Consortium and 2 experts from one associated or supporting partner. Evaluations are made according to the following weighted criteria: academic excellence (40%), motivation (35%), professional experience and previous learning mobility (15%), recommendations (5%), additional language proficiency (5%).
Final selection is agreed during a DYCLAM Executive Board meeting by full consensus on the basis of averaged evaluations’ score.
Candidates must fill and sign an application form and enclose the following application documents:
Please note that application forms and enclosures will be kept by the Consortium for its records.
IMPORTANT !As applicant, you must demonstrate a French language proficiency equivalent to level C1 in the Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR) with official test scores (DALF qualifications). ( http://www.coe.int/t/dg4/linguistic/Cadre1_en.asp ) If your French language proficiency is below level C1, you can still apply to DYCLAM. In that case, you must produce any document proving your language level with your application form (test scores (such DELF qualifications), grades, letter from an academic or from your home institution, etc.). However, if you cannot demonstrate a level C1 in French, you commit yourself to follow French language courses at the time of your application, in your country. If you are selected in DYCLAM, you will have to follow additional Summer courses at Saint-Etienne in July and August (at your own expenses). Failure to do so will result in cancelling your application. Finally, during the first semester, you will also have to follow French courses (for free, this time!). Every year students learn french language for a first time and with a lot of motivation it’s possible ! Please keep in mind that in DYCLAM, lectures and tutorials are taught in French. English is considered as a support language only. To demonstrate your level in English, please produce documents such official test scores, grades, official letters from your home institution, etc.
