  • Then you will receive an email confirming the registration.
    In this email you will find your username and a system generated password and attached the Master application manual.

    Please note further: As to  It has to official documents (high school, university, language certificates etc.): It has to be visible that the scanned document (viz. the digital copy) was not made from a "self-made document". This means that you have to make the digital copy of the official documents (i.e. school leaving certificate etc.) from the document given to you by the issuing institution or other body. In this way on the digital copy the stamp(s) and signature(s) of the issuing institution or other body is/are visible! However, it does not matter whether the digital copy was made from a simple copy of the original or a simple copy of the certified copy, since a scan is by nature a simple (digital) copy!

If you apply at a time when the application period for the Masters programme of your choice is over, please, do not use the option "Z_specific_authorization" in order to get around the fact that the application period is over or that the application period for the Masters programme you want to apply for has not started yet! If you do so, your application is not valid and will be deleted.
