Hello!
I'm currently applying for master's degree. Today I received a letter of "conditional offer". What does it mean for me? Does it say something about scholarship status or just about acceptance to university? I graduate this year, so I have to upload my diploma letter. I know it, but I dont know either accept the "conditional offer" or not. I cant pay for my studies, so I'm not interested in studying without scholarship.
Those who are acquainted with Erasmus Mundus programme, could you please say: whether applicants currently getting their degree receive separate letter of admission to the program and scholarship letter or not? Does "conditional offer" give me any hope or all the applicants get it?

Hey! Congratulations on your offer. I'm an applicant as well, so no expert at all, but let me try to help you.

I'm not sure about Erasmus programmes, but generally a conditional offer means that your acceptance to the Master's programme is tied to you graduating from your current programme under certain conditions specified by the university (may be specific grades or proof of English proficiency, for example), before you can enroll in the programme you've applied to. I guess that's the kind of offer more commonly received by people when they apply for the Master's before obtaining their Bachelor's degrees, as seems to be your case.

People get unconditional offers when they offer proof that they already fulfill all the requirements to start the programme upon making their applications. I'd say that's more common with folks who apply after they've already finished their Bachelors degrees, as was my case.

As for the scholarship, again, I'm no expert and that depends very much on the kind of scholarship you're expecting to receive. But, based on my experience, receiving an offer letter (be it conditional or unconditional) does not automatically mean you've been awarded a scholarship, as admissions and scholarship offerings are, as far as I'm aware, different processes, led by different teams within the university.

For example, I am a Brazilian student, also applying for a Master's degree, and I believe I meet all the criteria to be considered for the International Leadership Scholarship. But first I got my offer letter, which had no mention to scholarships whatsoever, and only after that I began to expect to hear a decision on the scholarship (which I haven't received yet, by the way).

So, if your application process is in any way similar to mine, I'd say that receiving an offer letter doesn't mean you've been awarded a scholarship at all. But above all, I'd advise you to check both your programme and the scholarship you're expecting to get on the university's website to see what they say about that.

Sorry for the long reply, and I hope you get your scholarship!
