What is the Reference Letter about?

The reference letters should be provided by academic/scientific persons (teachers, researchers, internship supervisors employees, etc.) who are familiar with applicant's work or character and who have positive remarks to make. The referees should attest also the adequation of applicant's background with the IPCV Master Course.

The reference letter should consist of 1-2 pages written in English, including the referees signature, presening on institutional headed paper and bearing an institutional stamp/seal.

 

I am not sure to understan how the reference section works.

Please note that it is your responsability to inform your referees of the procedure settled by the eform.

In the referees section of the e-form, you have to write e-mails of your 2 referents. After you validate this information, the e-form is sending an automatic e-mail to your referees. The e-mail sent includes the link where the reference letter has to be uploaded on your e-form. As this is a confidential document, you are not allowed to add yourself the reference letter in the application, but your referees will have to follow the instructions presented in our e-mail. Your referees have to check their mailbox (the e-mail might be redirected in the SPAM folder, be alerted of that problem).

If your referees followed the instructions properly, you will be able to see a green V instead of a read X in the attachment list on your e-form.

Please be careful by writing the information of your referees in the eform. The referees section will be locked after you validate it, and you won't be able to modify it. The automatic e-mail can be sent only once. In case of misprint, your referee will not receive the e-mail and cannot upload his/her reference letter.

My referee(s) did not receive the eMundus automatic e-mail with link to upload his/her (their) reference letter...

  • EITHER you correctly write down the e-mail: there is a possibility that the automatic IPCV mail with the link to upload the reference letter has been redirected in the "spam" folder of your referee mailbox.
  • OR you have made a mistake when writing the e-mail address of your referee: in that case, he/she did not receive the link to upload the reference letter. 

Problem 1: You are not allowed to correct any information regarding referees information in the application, this section is automatically locked once this page of the e-form is validated (confidentiality of the reference letters).

Problem 2: The e-mail is sent automatically by the e-form and cannot be sent a second time.

Solution proposed:

  1. Please ask your referee to check first in his/her SPAM folder.
  2. If he still has no e-mail, ask your referee to confirm through an e-mail enquiry to application-ipcv@u-bordeaux.fr he/she did not receive any mail from us.

 

I applied last year and I cannot reactivate my account.

Please note that accounts of non-selected applicants have been due to limitation of storage capacity. You need to activate a new account preferably with different login and password. However, you can use the same e-mail address.

 

How can I be sure that my application has been submitted?

Make sure:

  • you filled in all the parts of the e-form
  • you attached all required documents (see check-list)
  • your referees submitted their reference letters (if relevant)

In this case you completed 100% of the e-form.

Make sure: 

  • you clicked on the button "submit"
  • you received an email confirming that your application has been saved.

In the case you received NO e-mail and you are sure all previous steps have been done, please contact to application-ipcv@u-bordeaux.fr

 

I am not sure whether I need to submit a paper-based application.

It is definitively not necessary to send your application via postal or electronic mail. However, you might be required to submit the hard copies later. So keep it anyway.

 

I do not hold all required attachments at the time of submission... can Il sublit my application?

At the time of application, you need to provide all required attachments.

Exceptions are made in the following cases:

  • I am currently a Bachelor student and will be graduated in a few months: We reming you that you can apply, provided you validate yout Bachelor degree before the IPCV Program starts. In theapplication form, instead of your Bachelor degree, you need to upload an official letter of your university stating that you are registered as a Bachelor student and will be delivered the Bachelor's degree, before the IPCV program starts.
