  • Out of all applicants the selection committee selects applicants who have demonstrated the capacity to make a significant contribution to the academic excellence of the Faculty. This criterion can be assessed on the basis of the academic transcript, a writing sample (e.g. Bachelor's thesis), a motivational letter, recommendation letters, and/or a Skype interview.
