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.


Preliminary Selection
Max. 12 points

1) Academic Success
Max. 5 points

There is no minimum GPA required for the programme.

GPA for the degree providing you with the eligibility to apply:

  • 3.50 - 5.00 = 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.

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

On 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.

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