Apply for an appraisal
CBS offers an appraisal round for prospective applicants with a refugee status. CBS assesses the documents sent in the appraisal application and confirms whether or not the qualifications fulfil the entry requirements for a particular programme. The appraisal round deadline is 15 December. Please write to [email protected] for further information and make sure to write “Information” in the subject line. You will receive an answer by 1 February.
CBS Admissions will assess your educational background in comparison to the entry requirements for the programme you wish to study. If you do not fulfil the entry requirements, CBS Admissions will indicate the areas that you are deficient in and how many ECTS-points you need in these areas to meet the entry requirements. We will also inform you about your possibilities for doing supplementary courses
If your appraisal indicates that you do not fulfil the specific entry requirements, you may sign up for supplementary courses at CBS International Summer University Programme.
