a) Academic curriculum (AC) – considering the academic qualifications required in the following terms: 

  • final grade of Academic Degree or equivalent: 10-13 point -------- 12 points 
  • final grade of Academic Degree or equivalent: 14-16 points ------- 15 points 
  • final grade of Academic Degree or equivalent: 17-20 points ------- 18 points

 

b) Scientific curriculum (SC) – weighing on a scale of 0-20 points, the candidate’s participation in congresses, seminars, research projects, number of published articles, awards and similar elements, provided that they are activities in the scientific area of the study cycle in question, in the following terms:

  • Curriculum with very low relevance --------------------------------------- 10 points 
  • Curriculum with low relevance ---------------------------------------------- 12 points
  • Relevant curriculum ----------------------------------------------------------- 14 points 
  • Highly relevant curriculum --------------------------------------------------- 16 points 
  • Exceptionally relevant curriculum ---------------------------------------- 18 points

  • Curriculum with low relevance ---------------------------------------------- 12 points
  • Relevant curriculum ----------------------------------------------------------- 14 points 
  • Highly relevant curriculum --------------------------------------------------- 16 points 
  • Exceptionally relevant curriculum ---------------------------------------- 18 points

 

d) In addition to the curricular assessment, a possible individual interview (II) may be carried out whenever the assessment of the academic, scientific, and professional curriculum is not sufficiently distinctive from the ranking of the different candidates, considering for this purpose the following skills and abilities: 

  • Ability to express oneself and critically reflect;
  • Motivation to attend the Postgraduate studies

 

e)       The classification of each candidate will result from the arithmetic mean of the scores assigned on a scale of 0 to 20 points for each of the two appreciation factors I) and II). 

 

4.2. The final classification will be scored by applying the following formula, on a scale from 0 to 20 points: CA = (AC*X+SC+PC) /3. Being that: 

 

CA = Curriculum Assessment

AC = Academic curriculum

SC = Scientific curriculum

PC = Professional curriculum

The weighting factor X takes one of the following values:

X = 1.3 for candidates with a degree in the areas of Arts, Architecture, Design, Philosophy, History of Art, Curatorship, Social Sciences

X = 1.0 for candidates with a degree in other areas considered suitable

 

4.3. If it is necessary to conduct an individual interview (II), the final classification formula is adapted, in the following terms: FS = (CA+II)/2, where: 

FS = Final score

CA = Curriculum Assessment (Academic curriculum + Scientific curriculum + Professional curriculum)

II = Individual interview

 

4.4. The scores resulting from the calculation of the averages will be expressed up to the hundredths, by rounding, in each selection method and also in the final classification, by defect or by excess, depending on whether the value of the thousandths is less than or greater than or equal to five.

 

5. The applications will be analyzed by a committee of experts, appointed by the Scientific Council for this purpose. The decisions of this committee will be recorded in the minutes and there will be no appeal.

 

6.The number of vacancies and deadlines for applying to the Postgraduate Studies will be set annually by order of the Academic Director, subject to ratification by the Scientific Council of ESAP and by the Board of Directors of CESAP.
