Prioritisation of applicants

Admission to the programme is competitive and limited to 30 students. 

All applicants will be subject to an overall individual assessment.

Selection criteria

All applicants will be subject to an overall holistic assessment, whereby applicants with the most points are granted admission. Up to 100 points are given based on the following criteria:

  1. 50 points based on a letter of motivation
  2. 20 points based on an evaluation of education and vocational experience
  3. 20 points based on grade point average achieved on the bachelor's degree programme
  4. 10 points based on the time taken to complete the bachelor's degree programme

Due to national legislation only courses at bachelor level will be taken into consideration during assessment. Courses at Master's level will not be assessed.

Applicants who have completed a two-year Master’s degree can only be admitted if the admission limits have not been met.
