  • A non-refundable application fee of €50/$50 (€100/$100 for the Ph.D. program).

All the material submitted for admission should consist of either the original documents or notarized copies. Since the language of instruction and administration is English, you should make sure that documents that are not in English are accompanied by certified English translations.
