Application tips

Top tips for admissions: 

  1. Don’t leave completing the application form to the last minute (factor in all the documents you’ll need to collect in advance)
  2. Get someone else to proofread your application.
  3. Make it easy on yourself: our Application Checklist, guiding you through the entire application process, is easy to follow
  4. Double-check our departmental website to make sure you've uploaded both the general and program-specific admissions documents
  5. Your recommenders have one week to upload their recommendations after you have submitted your application and have paid the application fee. You can track the status of your references via the Applicant Portal
  6. Don't have your final transcripts and diploma at hand yet? Don't worry. We can accept an interim transcript and certificate of enrollment from your university, but we will ask for an official hard copy before you enroll. The translation of your transcript and diploma, however, must be official
  7. Make sure you pay the application fee of EUR 30. This fee cannot be waived but the good news is that you only have to pay it once, no matter how many programs you're applying for (up to five)
  8. Would you like to apply for a scholarship? Remember to fill out the Funding section of the application form and submit your application by February 1, 2023, 23:59 Central European Time so we can consider you for financial aid
  9. Don’t forget that your application must be complete with the required language and program-specific test scores
