If there are more eligible applicants for a course or programme than there are places, a selection process will take place.

Applications for Master’s programme will be assessed based on results from previous university studies. Once admitted to a Master’s programme and applying for courses within it, the same merit system is generally used.

Applications for Bachelor’s programmes will be assessed on applicant’s final school grades. Once admitted to a Bachelor’s programme and applying for courses within it, the merit system is usually based on the amount of credits taken within the programme.
