Differential exams

In accordance with the enrolment requirements, the differential exams are a condition for enrolment in the first year of the master's study programmes for those candidates, who have completed the study programme for obtaining a professional degree or a study programme for obtaining a university degree in other professional (non-related) fields.

Differential exams are a prerequisite for enrolment and must be passed by candidates BEFORE enrolment.

Application and timetable for the differential exams for enrolment into master`s degree programmes in the academic year 2023/24 will be available in April 2023.


The cost for each course including the exam (3 attempts) will be published in April 2023.
