Selection Criteria

The PEI is not a professional training programme, but a space for exploration and activation of knowledge. The selection committee, made up of the Head of Programming, the academic coordinator and members of the faculty, will assess the diversity of profiles and careers not only from a strictly academic perspective, but taking into account the wider aspects and ways in which knowledge takes place, including artistic practice, activism, research, working and studying experience.

The selection criteria will take into account:

  • The materials provided within the registration period
  • The relevance of the experience and activities of the applicants, whether academic or professional, to the contents and objectives of the programme
  • There is no age limit

Selection scale:

  • Excellence of curricular and practical training (10 points)
  • Relevance to the programme (10 points)
  • Submitted project (10 points)

If considered necessary, an interview will be conducted (in person or online).

Communication of acceptance: Candidates will be notified from 26 November 2018. This communication will be by email.
