Application Requirements

Master degrees in Computer Science typically admit students who have an academic degree in a related subject such as Data Engineering, Information Technology or Computer Science. Depending on the programs’ specializations, applicants from more diverse backgrounds may also be admitted. For most programs, entrance tests or interviews are not part of the admission process, students must simply submit required documents (first degree certificate and a transcript of records). These typically include your CV and a letter of motivation and sometimes letters of reference. Additionally, you will have to prove your English language abilities with a language certificate, some programs may require you to demonstrate previous knowledge in programming languages.
