Application Guidelines
For prospective students’ initial application for admissions, the copies of documents submitted do not have to be original or certified as true. However, if admitted, you will be required to have original transcripts sent directly from your university, as well original TOEFL/IELTS/GRE scores sent directly from the relevant examining body.


Applicants are required to complete the online application form and submit the following documents in PDF, MS Word or JPF format. Please do not upload RAR or ZIP files.  


  • Copy of undergraduate/graduate transcripts
  • Statement of Objectives
  • Research proposal (for PhD applicants)
  • Copy of GRE and TOEFL (or IELTS) scores
  • Copy of CV (including education, list of publications, awards, professional experience, etc.)
  • JPEG of passport-sized photo of not more than 100K in size
  • Name and email address of 3 referees (It is preferable that these email addresses are university/professional email addresses and not common Yahoo, Gmail, Hotmail, etc., email addresses)


Guidelines for the Statement of Objectives
The Statement of Objectives is a very important part of your application so we encourage you to write it carefully. We seek a statement of one to two pages (approximately 400 to 1,000 words) explaining your reasons for wanting to complete your graduate studies at the Masdar Institute of Science and Technology.

Your statement of objectives should include:


  • How you think about the world and your professional objectives
  • The issues or problems you want to address during your studies at Masdar Institute and the setting in which you eventually see yourself working professionally
  • How your previous studies and work experience (if any) relates to what you propose to do at Masdar Institute
  • Why you are applying to Masdar Institute and the specific program
  • Other matters you think are important for us to know


Guidelines for the Research Proposal (for PhD applicants)
PhD candidates are required to write a brief proposal for research outlining in general terms the scope of their intended research project, and naming at least three potential research advisors from the Masdar Institute faculty. Note: A list of faculty and their research interests can be found on the Masdar Institute website.


The research proposal is a critical component of the PhD application. It is a demonstration of the ability of the candidate to conduct advanced research in their field. 


The research proposal should:


  • Be written in an academic format;
  • State clearly the candidate’s research question(s) and objective(s);
  • Conduct a literature review of prior relevant work;
  • Offer a methodological section describing how the objective(s) would be achieved; and
  • Explain why Masdar Institute provides the right environment for such work.


The research proposal does not bind the candidate in their future research at Masdar Institute, as it can and, most likely, will be modified in part or in full, but it shows the passions, capabilities and overall research potential of the candidate.


There are four scholarships available to applicants of Masdar Institute – the Masdar Institute Scholarship, IRENA Scholarship, Toyota Scholarship and ICT Fund Scholarship.
