Application instructions

First check the minimal entry requirements.

Then you access the Master Programme in two ways:

  1. directly (without formal evaluation) if
    • final graduation score ≥ 95/110
    • (when not yet  graduated) at least 150 credits of exams registered in the transcript and a weighted average ≥ 25/30
  2. passing an admission test, required when final Bachelor mark < 95/110 or (if not yet  graduated) weighted average < 25/30. The test takes place only once (in September) and is "in-presence".

See info on how to enroll.
