Q: How many paths can I select in one application?
You can select up to three different paths from the total of 18 for your application. These will be treated as your preferred choices (or priorities) for enrolment in the Masters programme. If your application is successful, you will be enrolled in one of those paths. Before you make your choice, consider the following:
Every institution offers a limited number of places, equally distributed among 3 paths for which it acts as a "home university". In order to be successful, you need to be among the top candidates for (at least) one of the home unversities you selected. There are two ways to distribute your three choices:
"University-specific": if you have made up your mind about your preferred home university, you can raise your chances of being accepted at that university by selecting all of the paths which start at that university.
"Profile-specific": if you have made up your mind about a path with a certain profile, and the home university is less important to you, you can select paths with that profile at different home universities. Depending on your ranking, the admission board will try to make the best possible offer in relation to your priorities.
