1. Previous studies: A completed Bachelor’s degree
Applicants must have completed a Bachelor’s degree encompassing a minimum of 180 ECTS credits or equivalent academic qualifications from an internationally recognized university.
Students in their final year of undergraduate education may also apply and if qualified, receive a conditional acceptance. If you have not completed your studies, please include a written statement from the degree administration office (or equivalent department), confirming that you are enrolled in the final year of your education and giving your expected completion date. If you receive a conditional offer, you should present your degree certificate to your entry university before enrollment at the latest. Applicants following longer technical programmes and who have completed courses equivalent to an amount of 180 ECTS, will be considered on a case-by-case basis.
2. Language requirements: Proof of English language proficiency
Applicants must provide proof of their English language proficiency. This is generally established through an internationally recognized test such as TOEFL or IELTS. We, therefore, advise all applicants considering submitting an application to urgently take either a TOEFL or an IELTS test. These tests are accepted by all partner universities. Please note that the results of your test must be done and uploaded at the time of submitting an application. We will not accept late submissions of proofs of English proficiency.
Some of the universities accept additional tests or exemptions. We have listed this information under ”University specific language tests and exemptions”. Please note that these exceptions are not accepted by all partner universities. Even though one university may accept some other test, your second preference entry or your preferred exit universities may not. For this reason, again, we urge all applicants to take a TOEFL or an IELTS.”
How to Apply: Scholarships are merit-based and no separate application for the EIT Digital Scholarship is needed.
