Selection
The selection of students is based on a cumulative assessment of one or more of the following factors: grades of academic courses, the quality/subject of the Bachelor’s Thesis, relevant work and/or research experience, motivation letter and the relevance of previous studies in relation to the programme in question.

The selection is currently done by merit rating on grades of your previous courses, grade of bachelor thesis and letter of purpose.
