Admission requirements 

The admission procedure takes place in two rounds: 1st round: The admission committee evaluates the materials which the applicant has attached to the application: - curriculum vitae - an essay / a motivation letter - a diploma and transcript of courses taken - two letters of recommendation from previous teachers. It is recommended to prepare these documents very carefully, as it is on the basis of these documents that the applicant will be invited to the second round of interviews. 2nd round: The entrance examination in the form of an interview conducted before the admission committee; upon prior agreement, it can be held using videoconferencing technology. In the admission process, the applicant can obtain a maximum of 100 points. To be accepted, it is necessary to receive at least 80 points. An admission committee evaluates a presentation of an applicant during the exam. However, the final decision has to be made by the dean of faculty. If the result is "accepted", the administrator of the Office for Quality prepares admission documents. These admission documents are sent directly to the applicant. In the case of a visa application, admission documents are required for the procedure.
