Supplementary courses

You must take supplementary courses if you do not fulfil the specific entry requirements or if you want to improve your grade point average of the course combination which is mentioned in the requirements to either:

  • Fulfil the requirement of the grades
  • Improve your chances in quota 2 for programmes that assess your application by the GPA of a specific course or a course combination

Please note, that you are not able to improve the GPA  of your qualifying examination.

Taking supplementary courses/language tests:

  • Before 5 July: 
    You can take several courses/levels if the course/test is finished and the documentation ready before 5 July.
  • After 5 July (during summer): 
    Supplementary courses taken after 5 July must be finished before programme start, i.e. 31 August. Your admission will be conditional until you have passed the missing course level.
