Autumn Semester 2020

The following are the key dates for application to the autumn semester. Please note that there are separate dates for master's and bachelor's, and for the two admissions rounds. Applicants from countries outside the EU/EEA are not encouraged to apply to the second round.


First admission round timeline

All international students are encouraged to apply to the First admission round. This round takes place many months before the start of a semester and gives students the time they need to pay their tuition fees, apply for and receive their residence permit (if required), find housing, etc.

Second admission round timeline

The Second admission round is an alternative for students from EU/EEA countries as they do not need a residence permit. Non-EU/EEA students will most likely not have enough time to obtain their permit before the start of the semester. Please note that not all courses and programmes are open in the second admission round.
