Note: in the registration phase, applications that do not prove having completed the degree (or equivalent) by the end of the enrollment deadline will be excluded.
The degree adequacy will be scored on a scale of 0 to 20 according to the following principles:
The adjusted grade is obtained by normalising the bachelor’s degree grade to the 0-20 scale (rounded to the nearest integer), adding the value of ln(R/r), and rounding to the first decimal digit, with ln expressing the natural logarithm and R and r being, respectively for the University of Porto and the university issuing the degree, the positions in the world ranking published in http://www.webometrics.info
For admitted applications where the degree has not yet been concluded, the previous formula applies, replacing the bachelor’s degree final grade with the weighted average of the curricular units completed on the application date rounded to the nearest integer.
The scientific curriculum and professional experience are classified from 0 to 20 according to the following two sub-criteria, considering the relevance of the indicators for the area of the cycle of studies.
In the event of a tie, the ranking of the higher education institution considered in subcriterion 1.2 will be used as the first tie break criterion and the result of an interview as the second tie break criterion.
The grades of the curricular units carried out must be certified by an official document to be presented by the candidate, including, whenever possible, their weighted average. In case the candidate does not yet have a bachelor's degree, and the presentation of the average is not possible via an official document, it must be indicated, explicitly, in the comments field of the application form.
