1) A Bachelor’s degree
Applicants are required to present an authenticated copy of at least a BA/BSc degree both in the original language and in English, as well as an official copy of the transcript of their studies. Graduating students need to send their certificates after the defense of the thesis work.
2) Successful entrance exam
The entrance exam to the Master’s Programs consists of a written (essay) and oral (telephone or Skype interview) parts.
The purpose of the interview is to assess applicants’ basic command of base subjects and disciplines of the programme (such as economic and statistical foundations of public policy and administration, policy studies), their verbal competences, as well as to learn about their motivation for joining a program. Interviews are evaluated, among others, on the basis of how successful applicants are in communicating their ideas, what career plans they have in mind or how they think they can benefit from the Master’s program in order to meet their future goals.
3) Language requirements
The English-language skills of applicants are tested in the entrance exam, which is an oral exam, and therefore, a certificate proving the English-language skills of the applicants is not required to be enclosed in the application package.
The Faculty welcomes applications the entire academic year.
