Since some of the study programmes require specifically qualified participants in order to fulfil the requirement of networking competences among the study participants and between teachers and learners, the access conditions are redefined for each study programme. The course managers will be happy to advise you.

In addition to formal degrees, great importance is attached to professional experience. Thus the examination of whether an applicant fulfils the admission requirements will always be a combined examination of his/her degrees and professional experience. In personal interviews, the study programme is explained and the objectives are compared - those of the study programme and those which the applicant is pursuing by taking up the study programme. The investment should be worthwhile for the students and ultimately pay for itself quickly.
