Admission Interviews will be conducted in person in the first week of July in each Academic Year or later on under personalised arrangement with our international applicants.

IMPORTANT NOTE!

If the courses in the transcript of the applicant do not correspond to the minimal entry credits (30 ECTS) in the Faculty International Relations Curriculum, the application unfortunately cannot and will not be further processed. Prospective applicants, upon providing their transcripts, will be informed about such a decision by the Admission Committee in due time.
