Further information

Preliminary Selection (max. 12 points)

1) Academic Success (max. 5 points)

There is no minimum GPA required for the programme.

The GPA for the degree you are applying with:

  • 3 points = 3.00 - 3.49
  • 5 points = 3.50 - 5.00

You must indicate your GPA for the degree giving you the eligibility to apply 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 converted 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.

You must also present how you are able to optimize your strong points by choosing this specific programme (please give examples) and, how the studies in this particular programme would support your career plans in the future.

  • 2-3 points = fair
  • 4-5 points = good
  • 6-7 points = excellent

Interview (max. 10 points)

In the second stage of the admissions process, a certain number of applicants are invited to an interview in the order of the highest total points scored in the preliminary selection.
