Admission requirements

A university degree is a precondition for admission. The academic director will decide whether a similar or comparable qualification results in eligibility for the program. The number of places is limited. In the case of equal qualifications the date of application will be decisive as to which applicants are selected.


The deadline for applications for the 2017/2018 full-time program and the 2017/2019 part-time program is April 15, 2017. The academic director assesses each application by April 30, 2017 and will base his decision on the applicant’s qualifications and the order in which the applications were received. All successful applicants must pay a registration fee of EUR 1,000, which will be deducted from the total program fee, by May 15, 2017. The remainder of the program fee must be transferred by July 15, 2017 at the latest.


Applications for the 2018/2019 full-time program must be submitted by April 15, 2018. A decision on the applications will be made by April 30, 2018. The registration fee must be paid by May 15, 2018 and the remaining program fee must be transferred by July 15, 2018.


The registration fee cannot be refunded if an applicant decides to withdraw from the program before it commences. There is also no refund of the program fee for applicants who withdraw from the program after it begins.
