Step 2 - Admission to EURIDOL Graduate School of Pain
While admission in a Master's programme of the Faculty of Life Sciences is necessary, it does not guarantee admission to the Graduate School of Pain.
An information meeting on the EURIDOL training programme is proposed to Master's students who have been accepted in one of the three Master's tracks in Neuroscience at the University of Strasbourg. This meeting is organised during the first Master's year.
Following this information session, interested students submit their application to EURIDOL. A very good academic record, English language skills as well as a letter of application showcasing the motivation for the 5-year integrated training programme will be key for admission.
Candidates will be informed about their admission to EURIDOL towards the end of the first year of their Master's studies.
To ensure your application to EURIDOL, you can tick a box while filling your application on the eCandidat platform (applicable to French or EU Students). You can also send a formal e-mail to the EURIDOL school management at the following address: euridol[at]unistra.fr.
Important change of the Master's admission calendar:
Starting with the academic year 2021-2022, the EURIDOL admission for Master's Students will be conducted during the second semester of Master 1 (in May/June).
Interested students must:
(i) have chosen at least one of the three NeuroStra Teaching Units (UE "Introduction to Pain" / UE "Time in Perception and Action" / UE "Mecanisms of Neurodegeneration") during their second semester of Master 1,
(ii) have done / plan to conduct an internship before the start of Master 2. In case of doubt, students should contact the Pedagogic Director, Prof. Pierre Veinante.
