If the baccalaureate grades are not accepted for the program of your choice, they require a little extra preparation.

The University of your choice gives you the Letter of Offer with the terms of acceptance and upon the successful completion of the specific Program, this letter is automatically converted into an admission letter of the University.


  1. A-Levels

Usually 2 to 4 courses are required depending on the student’s case in combination with the University.
