Further information

Academic Success (max. 5 points)

The GPA for the degree providing you with the eligibility to apply to the programme is given points as follows:

  • 5 points = 4.50 or higher
  • 4 points = 4.00 - 4.49
  • 3 points = 3.50 - 3.99
  • 2 points = 3.00 - 3.49
  • 1 point = 2.50 - 2.99

You are required to indicate your GPA on your application form with two decimals or, calculate it if not indicated in the Degree Certificate or Transcript of Records.

The GPA used in the LUT selection process is an arithmetic average of all individual study attainments included in the degree and graded with numbers, including the Final Thesis and excluding the grades for any fails. If your previous degree was not evaluated on a 5-point scale, your GPA will be adapted to a 5-point grading scale by the Admission Committee for the programme.

NOTE: You are required to provide a link on your application form to verify the grading scale. If not able to do that and the grading scale not being explained in either the Degree Certificate or Transcript of Records, an additional, officially certified document issued by the degree-awarding university is required.

Your GPA converted on a 5-point scale will act as your points in the selection process. In case of the points being the same for applicants in that critical point of when the number of applicants getting admitted is full, it is the actual GPA that will be considered at that point i.e. the higher GPA will be outruling the lower ones.
