Your application will then be passed on to the programme coordinator of your desired subject, who will then examine the learning agreement and make a decision about your admission to the programme.
If you are admitted by your desired faculty, the Public Relations Office will send you an acceptance letter and the signed learning agreement.
Upon arrival all incoming students have first to register at the Public Relations Office. After that, they can be enrolled at the School they have been accepted.
The School’s Secretariat will provide students with a Student Academic Identification Card which gives right of access to libraries, sport facilities and gives reduction in the fares of all means of transport.
