Once you have registered your application you may continue to work on the application details and attachments until the deadline. Submit the application only when you have filled in all the information correctly and have successfully uploaded the final version of the attachments.

After submission, it will not be possible to update or modify your application.

Reference Letters

The EUI does not request reference letters at this stage but candidates are asked to provide the names and contact details of two referees whom the EUI may contact at a later date. 

Selection Procedure

Candidates are selected by a committee consisting of teaching staff from the relevant Department. Final approval is made by the Executive Committee. Their decision is final and there is no appeal.
