All About Admission Guidelines for Foreign Students
Candidates belonging to 2 different groups can apply through Quota 2:
The first group comprises candidates who have an upper secondary education. If the GPA is not high enough for admission in Quota 1, candidates can apply through Quota 2. Assessment is made on the basis of other qualifications as well. The application will also be assessed automatically on a simultaneous basis in Quota 1 so that you will have to apply for each programme at one point of time only.
Qualifications Other Than Upper Secondary Education
For candidates who possess qualifications other than upper secondary education, the application can be made for some programmes based on other qualifications such as vocational training or single subject courses. This is the only an option for certain programmes such as professional bachelor degree programmes and academy profession programmes.
