Applicants should also include at least one but a maximum of two letters of recommendation from their referees.

During their first year students choose the specialisation which they would like to pursue during the second year. Admission to the second year is based on the successful completion of the first year (60 ECTS), as well as the results in the first-year classes relevant to their specialisation.
