If we cannot read your documents that are relevant for admission to the desired degree program, it will not be possible to check them and you will unfortunately have to be excluded from the admissions process. Please also avoid PDF files where documents are upside down or scanned at random.

  • Only upload one PDF file for each upload field

    Please note that you can only upload one PDF file at a time for each upload field. This means that if you want to upload several documents to one field, you must first combine them into one PDF file.

  • Pay attention to maximum file size

    The upload fields are limited in size. So, if your file exceeds the maximum file size, you will need to resize it first.
