NOTE FOR APPLICANTS WITH FOREIGN QUALIFICATIONS

In the case of degrees earned abroad, the assessment of curricular requirements is based on the evaluation of the exams taken (as represented in the transcript of records). The Degree Programme Admission Board assesses only the substantial aspect of the degrees, based on the copies of the degrees and certificates provided and on the Diploma Supplement, if applicable. It does not carry out a formal verification of the degree. The formal verification is carried out by the “Student Administration Office” after original documents are provided. Final admission to enrollment will therefore be confirmed by the appointed office only after this formal verification had been carried out.
