Pre-enrolment application to second cycle degree courses

Students enrolled in a first-cycle degree course in the 2021-2022 academic year who intend to graduate within that academic year and continue their studies in a second cycle degree course, must submit an online pre-enrolment application by 21 October 2022. Following this pre-enrolment, the graduating student is admitted to attend the second cycle degree course as an auditor student. A pre-enrolled student may not acquire ECTS credits from the second cycle degree course until he or she has obtained the first-cycle degree. To activate this position, the graduating student is required to pay a non-refundable pre-enrolment fee of 50 €.
After graduating, the student may finalise enrolment in the second cycle degree course by paying tuition fees. Payment and subsequent enrolment must be made, under penalty of forfeiture, by 31 March 2023.
For the years following the first year, enrolments can be made from 5 September to 11 November 2022.
