Admissions Criteria and Selection

Final selection among the applicants is based on:

  • Academic success
    = the GPA for the degree providing you with the eligibility to apply to the programme.

There are no interviews included in the selection process.

If failing to present any information requested on your application form, the missing information will not be taken into account in the selection process. This applies also to indicating or calculating your GPA as requested if not already indicated in your Transcript of Records.

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

Minimum Requirements for the Programme

Minimum GPA

To possibly get admitted, it is required that the average grade for the degree providing you with the eligibility to apply is

  • a minimum of 2.50 on the scale of 1.00 - 5.00.


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 must 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 is an arithmetic average of all individual study attainments included in the degree graded with numbers, excluding the Final Thesis. 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 must 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.

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.
