Once the Admissions Committee has evaluated the candidate's specific merits, it may ask the candidate to attend a personal interview to complete the application process.


The selection and admission of students is carried out by the master's degree Coordination Committee, which is comprised of the coordinator, a teaching staff representative from the departments that teach at least 20% of the master's degree, a student, and the head of the Secretary's Office for Students and Teaching Staff or his/her delegate.
The Committee will notify candidates of its decision by email, in June and September, depending on the pre-enrolment period. If a candidate disagrees with the Committee's decision, he/she can make a written request for a review. The letter should be sent to the Secretary's Office of the school or faculty no later than ten days after receiving email notification of the decision.
