What happens after June 2, 2020?

We will send you an email by June 9, 2020 to let you know whether or not the entrance exam takes place (see Step 2: Entrance Exam).

In which case will the exam be held?

If more registered applicants complete the OSA (Step 1) by the deadline than there are places available, step 2 of the selection procedure will also come into effect: the entrance exam. If there are fewer applicants completing the OSA, the exam will not be held. In this case, you can enroll in the program for the desired semester (i.e., for the following winter or summer semester) during the enrollment period – for more information, please refer to our application guide.

Step 2: Entrance Exam on July 7, 2020
