Intake assignments

Once the educational requirements have been checked, you will receive an invitation to start the intake process via email. In general all parts of the intake process are important, but the starting point is always the online part of the assessment. You have to hand in the requested assignments on time, otherwise you will not be invited for the face-to-face part of the intake process.

Besides common assignments and tests, each study path has its own intake assignment(s).
