Application Documents

The university will need from you the following documents:

  1. Bachelor certificate (or certificate of a comparable university degree) with a final grade. Alternatively, if you have not yet completed your bachelor's degree, submit a provisional certificate with an intermediate grade based on your completed courses. The university will need the full certificate until the 30th of September, otherwise, they won't be able to enroll you.
  2. Transcript of records with your courses and grades.
  3. Unless your mathematics courses have been taken at an institute for mathematics and have clear descriptive names like "Linear Algebra", "Analysis", "Stochastics" (as opposed to names like "Mathematics for Engineers 1/2/3"), enclose the syllabus of your mathematics courses.
  4. If you do not yet have your bachelor's degree, the university needs confirmation from your supervisor that you are scheduled to submit your bachelor thesis, with the expected date of completion of your degree. If your bachelor's degree does not involve writing a thesis, a confirmation of this fact from your university is needed.
  5. Proof of your proficiency in English (see language requirements). If your bachelor course was taught entirely in English, then you do not need an extra certificate of English skills.
  6. Copy of your passport or ID card.
  7. If you are eligible for preferential treatment, e.g. because of some disability, a confirmation of that is needed.
