Submitting the Bachelor Degree at a later date / Admission with Qualified Acceptance

An application with an incomplete Bachelor's degree is possible if

  • the prospective student can prove that he/she has already completed 150 ECTS. Therefore he/she will have to submit a preliminary transcript including a preliminary total grade average. The grade average must include all work to date. Conditional admission may then be granted as qualified acceptance. The admission to the master course expires if proof of the Bachelor degree is not given by September 30th.
  • the prospective student can prove that he/she has completed 180 ECTS but is missing the final certificate of the Bachelor Degree. Therefore he/she will have to submit his/her preliminary transcripts. Conditional admission may then be granted as qualified acceptance. The admission to the master course expires if proof of the Bachelor degree is not given by September 30th.
