The next step is to check the programme-specific requirements – be sure to do this well in advance. All our programmes require a Bachelor’s or an equal (minimum) three-year undergraduate degree in relevant fields of study and sufficient English language skills. Especially getting the language tests done can take time. Always check the member university website for any programme-specific admission requirements, which are also listed in the programme descriptions when you fill in your application.

Plan your finances

Remember to make a realistic plan for financing your studies. As an international student, you are usually required to independently cover your everyday living expenses like food, accommodation, insurance etc. If you are a non-EU student, you usually need to pay tuition fees. Keep in mind that the universities offer generous scholarships, which can cover both tuition fees and living expenses.
