Admissions Criteria and Selection

Selection process is conducted in two stages:

Final selection among the interviewed applicants is based on:

  • Total points scored for the preliminary selection + the interview

The Admissions Committee for the programme reserves a right to decide whether the applicant's previous studies meet 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.

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.

SELECTION PROCESS
 

Preliminary Selection:
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:

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

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 considered in the LUT selection process is an arithmetic average of all individual study records included in the degree and graded with numbers, including the Final Thesis and excluding the grades for all the fails.

In case of your previous degree not having been evaluated on a 5-point scale, your GPA will be converted to a 5-point grading scale by the Admission Committee for the programme during the evaluation process.

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.

 

Interview 
Max. 10 points

On the second stage of the admissions process, a limited number of applicants are invited to an interview in the order indicated by the total score scored in the preliminary selection.

In the interview, your motivation, applicability and possibilities for successfully completing your studies in the programme are being evaluated with programme-specific questions. Your language and communication skills in English will be evaluated in the interview as well.

In case of the total points being same for more than one applicant at the point where the number of students getting admitted is to be completed, the applicant/s with more successful performance in the interviews has an advantage and will be admitted. 

The interview will be done as a video interview.

If not having been invited to an interview, you cannot get admitted either.
