To be admitted to the Doctor in Bioscience Engineering degree programme, the candidate must hold one of the following qualifications:
The candidates should have "excelled" in their previous studies. This corresponds to the grade of "distinction", or "1st class or upper 2nd class honours" or an equivalent ranking, depending on the country issuing the diploma. The Doctoral Commission assesses the factual equivalence of the diplomas and grades.
Non-EU Master of Science diplomas ordinarily lead to the requirement of a pre-doctoral programme of 30 to 60 credits. The Doctoral Commission may exempt the candidate from the pre-doctoral programme if it grants equivalence to the diploma after assessment of the dossier.
