To qualify for admission, applicants need to fulfill the admission requirements which are a complete and suitable Bachelor’s degree in the relevant field of studies and demonstrate a proof of English language proficiency.

Bachelor's degree 

Applicants must have completed a Bachelor’s degree encompassing a minimum of 180 ECTS credits or equivalent academic qualifications from an internationally recognized university.

Conditional acceptance
Students in their final year of undergraduate education may also apply and if qualified, receive a conditional acceptance. If you have not completed your studies, please include a written statement from the degree administration office (or equivalent department), confirming that you are enrolled in the final year of your education and giving your expected completion date - which should be before the start of the Master's programme.

If you receive a conditional offer, you should present your degree certificate to your entry university before enrollment at the latest. Applicants following longer technical programmes and who have completed courses equivalent to an amount of 180 ECTS, will be considered on a case-by-case basis.

Relevant field of studies

Please check on our website that you have a relevant bachelor’s degree and/or skill set for the programme you wish to apply for.If you have a bachelor’s degree that differs from our recommended degrees, you are still welcome to apply by explaining how your academic and professional background suits the specific programme.

Proof of English language proficiency

All our programmes are taught in English.

As a result, applicants must provide proof of their English language proficiency. This is generally verified through an internationally recognized test such as TOEFL or IELTS. We advise all applicants considering submitting an application to take either a TOEFL or an IELTS test as theyare accepted by all partner universities. Please note that the results of your test must be uploaded at the time of submitting an application. We will not accept late submissions of proofs of English proficiency. 

Some of the universities accept additional tests or exemptions. We have listed this information under “University specific language tests and exemptions”. Note that these exceptions are not accepted by all partner universities. Even though one university may accept some other test, your second preference entry or your preferred exit universities may not. For this reason, again, we urge all applicants to take a TOEFL or an IELTS.

Please note that most TOEFL and IELTS tests results are only valid for 2 years from the test date.
