General document requirements
In order to complete your admissions application, you must provide the following documents so they arrive at University Admissions by the deadline.
Record of completed upper secondary (high school) education
In order for your eligibility for courses and programmes at the bachelor's level to be determined - and for you to compete with other applicants for available places in courses and programmes - you must submit your upper secondary qualifications.
This completed education, along with the awarded degree certificate or diploma, must qualify you for higher education studies in the country you received it.
Your university qualifications cannot be considered instead of your upper secondary (high school) qualifications. However, the results from your previous university studies may help you meet the specific entry requirements for a course or programme.
For more information about submitting university documentation, see the information for your country of study for master's applications.
In order to speed up the processing of your application, we require a copy of the page in your passport with your personal data and photograph, or a similar identification document.
