How to apply

Once you have thoroughly researched what AUC has to offer, and what AUC expects from its students, and you are sure it is the programme for you, then you are warmly invited to apply by completing and submitting our online application form.

Application deadlines

You want to start at AUC in:

Application deadline:

February 2018 No longer accepting applications*
September 2018

1 December 2017 ("early bird")

1 February 2018 (regular deadline)






*Please note that AUC typically offers the option to apply to start your studies in February. However, due to an extraordinary increase in the number of applications already received, AUC is no longer accepting new applications for a February 2018 start date. We highly encourage you to submit your application to start your studies at AUC in September 2018 instead. 

Application guidelines and online application form

Before you start to complete the online application form please download the Application Guidelines and read them carefully. 

Checklist for your application

You are invited to download and use the checklist (link below) to help you to prepare all the information and documents that you will need to include in your application.

You can log in to your application in our online application system as often as you like, and you can complete it in stages if you wish. But you must complete and submit it before AUC can process it!

When you have submitted your application, we will wait until at least two of your recommenders have completed their online recommendations before we start to process it.

AUC is a selective programme with a limited number of places, and we prioritise prospective students who have not previously completed a Bachelor degree. If you already have (or are about to complete) a Bachelor degree, you can still apply to AUC, but your chances of selection will be low.

For more information on our policy on admissions and the application process, see the links to the left.

Tuition fees and financial support

Use the links below to find information on the fees and costs of studying at AUC, and sources of financial support. We would like to draw your attention in particular to the AUC Scholarship Fund.

Transfer of credit

If you are already studying at another university and wish to transfer to AUC, you must complete the online application form and all the admissions procedures just like a new student. For information on transfer of credit, and to download the transfer of credit request form, please follow the link below.

Exchange students

If you want to apply for an exchange or study abroad period at AUC, please contact the Study Abroad Office at your home institution. Do not use our online application form: that is only for applicants to the full three-year AUC programme! For more information on coming to AUC on exchange, please follow the link below.
