Review the admissions criteria

Before applying, make sure you can meet all the admissions criteria:



If you are in your final year of undergraduate education, you can also apply and receive a conditional offer for any of our programmes and institutions. Higher National Diploma is not sufficient qualification for admission to our programmes.


Please note that applicants who submit unauthentic, falsified or manipulated documents will be authomatically disqualified from admission.


More information on programme-specific requirements section below.

Previous studies: a completed Bachelor’s degree

You must have completed a Bachelor’s degree worth a minimum of 180 ECTS credits OR an equivalent academic qualification from an internationally recognised university.


  • The content of your Bachelor’s degree is more important than the name of your degree, and should be directly relevant to the Master’s programme(s) you are applying for. Please check the specific requirements given for each programme below.
  • If you do not have a relevant Bachelor’s degree, but you have studied longer technical programmes and have completed courses with an equivalent of 180 ECTS credits, you may submit an application to be considered on a case-by-case basis.
  • In order to present your ECTS (credits) score record, please make sure to order it in advance.


Higher National Diploma is not sufficient qualification for admission to our programmes.


Conditional Acceptance


If you are in your final year of undergraduate education, and expect to qualify before the programme’s start-date, you may apply to an InnoEnergy Masters+ programme. If accepted, you will receive a conditional offer, pending confirmation of successful completion of your Bachelor’s degree.
