Qualification Requirements

To apply, you need a good undergraduate degree with at least 35 ECTS credits in economics (gained in subjects such as microeconomics, macroeconomics and/or economic policy) and at least 15 ECTS credits in mathematics and statistics. To illustrate this point: If you are applying on the basis of a three-year undergraduate degree, at least 20% of that degree programme should have consisted of economics modules and 8% of mathematics and statistics modules. Beyond this, there are no specific requirements on the content of your first degree programme. If you have not yet received your final results and certificates at the time of application, you may apply using your Transcript of Records or other preliminary transcript. If you are successful in your application, you should then submit a transcript of at least 150 ECTS by the end of the tenth week of lectures in the first semester. You can then complete your undergraduate degree in parallel with the Master's programme by the end of the 2nd semester.
