Admissions Criteria and Selection

Final selection among the applicants is based on:

  • Academic success
    Only a limited number of applicants will be admitted.
    In case of several applicants having scored exactly the same points in the evaluation process and one of them would still qualify within the limited number of admitted students, then every applicant with the exact same points scored will be admitted.


Minimum Requirements for the Programme

Previous Preogramme-Specific Studies

To possibly get admitted, you must have completed

You are responsible for converting, calculating and presenting the required and completed studies in ECTS credits on your application form listed by disciplines and courses according to the following:

  • 1 ECTS credit = a workload of 27 hours (lectures, assignments etc.)

The Admissions Committee for the programme has a right to decide whether the applicant's previous studies match with the requirements for the programme or not. There will be no preliminary statements given regarding to previous studies before or during the application period.

Minimum GPA

To possibly get admitted, the GPA for the degree providing you with the eligibility to apply must be

  • a minimum of 3.50 on the scale of 1.00 - 5.00.

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 converted to a 5-point grading scale by the Admission Committee for the programme.

NOTE: Carefully answering all the questions on your Online Application Form is a must as missing information will lead into not scoring points for that question.
