Applicants must have completed a Bachelor’s degree encompassing a minimum of 180 ECTS credits or equivalent academic qualifications from an internationally recognized university.

Conditional acceptance
Students in their final year of undergraduate education may also apply and if qualified, receive a conditional acceptance. If you have not completed your studies, please include a written statement from the degree administration office (or equivalent department), confirming that you are enrolled in the final year of your education and giving your expected completion date - which should be before the start of the Master's programme.

If you receive a conditional offer, you should present your degree certificate to your entry university before enrollment at the latest. Applicants following longer technical programmes and who have completed courses equivalent to an amount of 180 ECTS, will be considered on a case-by-case basis.

Proof of English language proficiency

All our programmes are taught in English.

As a result, applicants must provide proof of their English language proficiency. This is generally verified through an internationally recognized test such as TOEFL or IELTS. We advise all applicants considering submitting an application to take either a TOEFL or an IELTS test as they are accepted by all partner universities. Please note that the results of your test must be uploaded at the time of submitting an application. We will not accept late submissions of proofs of English proficiency.

Some of the universities accept additional tests or exemptions. We have listed this information under “University specific language tests and exemptions”. Note that these exceptions are not accepted by all partner universities. Even though one university may accept some other test, your second preference entry or your preferred exit universities may not. For this reason, again, we urge all applicants to take a TOEFL or an IELTS.

Please note that most TOEFL and IELTS tests results are only valid for 2 years from the test date.

General language requirements (Accepted by ALL our universities)

IELTS Academic test (www.ielts.org)
An overall band score of at least 6.5, with no section lower than 6, is required. IELTS-tests are verified online by the Admissions office, submitting a photocopy of your test together with your application documents is therefore sufficient.

IELTS Indicator is not accepted as part of the general requirements but is  accepted by many partner universities, see “University-specific language tests and exemptions” below.

TOEFL Internet-based test, iBT (www.toefl.org)
A total score of at least 92 (with writing section 22 and other sections 21) is required. English test results from TOEFL should be sent directly from the ETS test center to EIT Digital Master School order for us to verify it/accept it”  (Institution code: 0210, Dept 99.). TOEFL iBT Home Edition is accepted as part of the general requirements.

TOEFL MyBest Scores are not accepted as part of the general requirements but are accepted by some partner universities, see “University-specific language tests and exemptions” below.

*Examinee score reports alone are not accepted. You may upload your score temporarily while you wait for ETS to send your score to us but we still need to verify it online and this is only possible if you have paid for EIT Digital to have access to it*

Please note that it can take several weeks for your test scores to arrive from ETS, so arrange for them to be sent to EIT Digital Master School as early as possible. We do not require the paper results, only to be able to verify them online.

English test proficiency waiver

English proficiency tests are waived for applicants who:

  • have completed a degree instructed in English at a university that is physically located in one of the following countries: USA, Canada, UK, Ireland, Australia or New Zealand.

If you are unable to take these general language tests, you can also see the university specific language requirements on our website.

Since you will be applying to two different universities make sure you check both universities requirements.
