Selection Process

Information about the two-stage selection process

The selection process is divided into two stages.

  • Academic Entry Requirements
  • Formal Entry Requirements

General Information on Selection Rules

The main selection criterion is your GPA in relation to other candidates from the same university, the country or finally the world. Other information provided as well as information from our knowledge base (regarding applications and students) may have been taken into consideration as well. English language proficiency is a legal prerequisite. The non-availability of a Bachelor degree certificate during the process, as well as temporary transcripts are not used as criteria for selection. Gender and nationality do not play a role for selection.

Application Status in C@MPUS

  • All application data and documents are sent by C@MPUS to the INFOTECH Admission Commission for evaluation. The Commission evaluates the applications and informs all applicants about the status of their application (admitted or application not accepted/not successful) by e-mail.

  • The C@MPUS data are now being updated to reflect these findings. The symbols in “Admission” will reflect your application status. Not all document-related fields will be updated. So, a statement like "uploaded" vs "ok" does not mean the document has not been read and taken into consideration. Usually, only the document fields “Bachelor Degree Certificate”, “Transcripts of Records”, “Proof of English Language Skills” and the fields for APS and Concour will be updated.

C@mpus may show:

  • Academic Entry AND Formal Entry Requirements: Fulfilled means: You are Admitted
    • With full/final documents received
      Application Documents: Complete
      → All fields Bachelor Degree Certificate, Transcript of Records, Proof of English Language Skills show an O.K
    • With one or all documents on a temporary level
      Application Documents: Provisional Complete
      → One or all the fields: Bachelor Degree Certificate, Transcript of Records, show "Submit by End of WS 202*/2*" (end of the first master semester)
  • The status Academic Entry Requirements: Not Fulfilled means: You are Not Admitted (see published requirements)
  • The status Academic Entry Requirements: Unknown means: You are Not Admitted (you have not been successful in competition with others for the available seats. The status of your documents, supplied or not, did not play a role.)
  • Only when Academic Entry Requirements: Fulfilled, the Admission Commission checks for the Formal Entry Requirements

The selection process is summarized in the table below:
