Application Guidelines

CV Guidelines

All applications to ETC programmes, including CVs, must be written in English.

A CV (curriculum vitae) is a written overview of work experience. It should be no more than 2 sides of A4 in length and must include:

  • Personal details (e.g. name, email, phone)
  • Employment history
  • Education history and academic qualifications
  • Other qualifications

You are not required to include a photo or recent salary information.

CVs will only be accepted in .pdf format up to 3MB in size. Note, if you have photos or images included on your CV, this will likely increase the size of your .pdf document.

Template CV

If you don't yet have a CV, you can use the Europass template: Europass has an online portal through which you can create a CV to a European standard and download in word and pdf formats.

Portfolio Guidelines

Only include your portfolio in an application if it is relevant to the project for which you are applying.

If an application form asks for a CV, a portfolio will not be accepted as an alternative unless it meets the CV guidelines detailed above.



For further inquiries or additional information, please contact Laura Gardes Project & Network Manager,

Note that we will not accept applications sent via email: only applications sent through the specific online form for each project will be accepted.
