Made up your mind and ready to enrol?

You can apply for the next academic year (2019-2020) from October 2019. After you have applied for admission and uploaded all the required documents, you will receive a confirmation of your registration. After we process your request you will receive an invitation by email to schedule your admission day. Through your personal intake page, you can schedule it by yourself. There are four assessments/interview weeks per year. If you are a non-EU country resident, please allow some time for your letter to arrive, as it takes longer to evaluate and confirm the diplomas from outside of the EU.

The assessment weeks 2019-'20* will be held on:

December 2-4, 2019
February 17 - 19, 2020
March 23 -27, 2020
