The main requirement for a master’s degree at UE is a final grade of at least “good” (2.5) in a completed bachelor’s degree program. If you do not meet this grade, we will need a letter of recommendation from your university.
Transfers – that is, graduates with a non-specialist bachelor’s degree – must complete preliminary or preparatory courses before starting their studies. These courses are also provided by UE: our Student Guidance Office is happy to advise you.
Students must meet the following requirements to qualify for a master’s degree program:

Upon receipt of your application we will arrange an appointment for the admission interview with the program manager.
