How to apply

Step-by-step application procedure

Application procedure

Step 1 - Online Eligibility Assessment (OEA)
can be done at any time of the year
Complete the OEA here

In order to know if you are eligible to apply for this programme, please check first the Admission Requirements. If you think you fulfil the requirements, please complete as next step the Online Eligibility Assessment (OEA) with all the required information. Within the next two week, you will receive an e-mail confirming if you are eligible to apply. If so, further information regarding the application process can be found in step 2. 

Important: The OEA does not substitute the written application, but it helps to determine whether you are eligible to apply or not. Therefore we recommend that you submit the OEA first and only continue with Step 2 and 3 if you are invited to do so by us.
Step 2 - Fill in, print and sign the Online Registration Form (ORF)
Complete the ORF here (only fields with * are mandatory). Please click on "Self-registration"
The ORF-portal is open only from March 20 to May 15.
