During the selection process we examine the competency of the applicant in two ways: the Faculty decides about the eligibility of the applicant by examining the documents of previous studies (degree certificate, transcript, subject descriptions, results). A detailed transcript must be submitted that contains: name of subjects, number of contact hours, credit/result. This is followed by a subject-related entrance interview (via Skype if personally not possible), where the scientific knowledge/background, level of English, motivation and communication skills of the applicant are assessed through relevant scientific questions.
