The selection procedure consists of three steps. First your application is checked for completeness and is then reviewed. Based on this review you may be invited for an interview.

The interviews are conducted by a member of the academic staff, either in person, over the phone or via Skype. The interview focuses not only on your academic performance but also explores your personal interests, background and motivations. The interview is held in English and will therefore also serve to assess your English proficiency. 

If you are admitted, you receive information on the registration procedure (and additional information on visa and insurance, if applicable) and an acceptance form, which you have to return within 2 weeks to be processed. You pay a non-refundable deposit of 350 euros within 7 days after sending in your acceptance form. This fee will make sure that you secure your spot in the new class. 

If you are not admitted, you receive a rejection letter. It is possible to reapply for the next semester or academic year, but you will need to provide new information regarding your academic background or other relevant experience. Otherwise your application will not be considered.
