Pre-tasks uploaded after the deadline will not be considered. The pre-task will be rated using the scale 0-5. An approved pre-task must be graded 2 or higher. Only eligible applicants with an approved pre-task will be invited to the entrance examination.

Entrance Examination

The entrance examination will be held in the form of an e-interview during 1-16 March 2021. The exact time of the e-interview will be included in the invitation e-mail. Eligible applicants with an approved pre-task will be invited to the e-interview. Your CV must be uploaded in the online application prior to the e-interview.

Assessment criteria for the interview are:

  • Relevant background and working experience
  • Skills in English
  • Interest in and dedication to the subject
  • Personal contribution to the study group
  • Personal career development


If you do not participate in the e-interview you cannot be admitted. The pre-task and e-interview can give you a maximum of 100 points in total. You must obtain at least 20/100 points to be admitted. Both the pre-task and e-interview must be passed in order to be considered for admission.

In cases of equal admission scores, applicants will be ranked on the following grounds:

  • e-interview and/or advance assignment

If these criteria fail to produce a difference between tied applicants, a university of applied sciences may choose to admit all or none of the equally ranked applicants, or the applicants will be automatically ranked by lots drawn by a computer system.
