    How to create a single PDF document?

    Need help to create a single PDF document with all the information? You will need to concatenate your PDF documents, for example with the gs command by: gs -q -dNOPAUSE -dBATCH -sDEVICE=pdfwrite -sOutputFile=main.pdf application_form.pdf cv.pdf certificates.pdf diplomas.pdf english.pdf transcript.pdf passeport.pdf. Other tools are also available

    Note for candidates outside Europe

    As you attach the Transcript of Records showing the marks you obtained, please do not hesitate to include any information regarding the educational system from your country, which may be quite different from the one in Europe. In general, any information allowing the program committee to better understand your application is welcome.

    Note: In the recently standardized European System of higher education (Bologna process), a master's degree corresponds to a one- or two-year postgraduate program (60 to 120 ECTS credits) undertaken after at least three years of undergraduate studies. It provides higher qualification for employment or prepares for doctoral studies. In general, though, the structure and duration of a program of study leading to a master's degree will differ by country and by university. In France, the master degree corresponds to a two-year program. The Computational Biology program requests that the first year (or equivalent) is completed in your home institution.
