Application checklist

To assist you in completing the online application form, we have created a checklist that includes all the information and documents that you will need for your application.

  • Online application procedure explained

    While completing your application, you can log in and access it as often as you like, but please remember that you must complete and officially submit it before AUC can process your application for enrolment. AUC processes applications in batches. Applications from those who apply as ‘early birds’ (meaning you have submitted a complete application before 1 December) will start to be processed in the first week of December and decisions on admission will be issued in the first week of February. Applications for those who apply before the regular deadline (meaning you have submitted a complete application before 1 February) will start to be processed in the first week of February and decisions on admission will be issued in the first week of April. 

    As a selective programme, AUC aims to admit 300 students per year. All applications undergo the same process of evaluation. After early-bird offers have been made, all those who apply before the regular deadline have an equal chance of being made an offer based on the spots available. For more information about our policy on admissions and the application process, please see the links in the left-hand menu and below.

  • Transfer of credit

    If you are currently studying at another university and wish to transfer to AUC, you should submit an application for admission to AUC and follow the same admission procedures as a new student.

    Should you have credits from another academic institution that you would like to have count toward your studies at AUC, you will need to officially request a transfer of credit. Please note that this request will be evaluated separately from your application for admission and is submitted using a separate form.

    Finally, please also note that transfer of credit requests can only be processed when an applicant has already submitted a complete application for admission to AUC.  For more information on the possibility of transferring credit, including a link to the transfer of credit request form, please follow the link below.

  • Exchange students

    If you want to apply for a semester exchange or to study abroad at AUC, please contact the Study Abroad Office at your home institution. Please do not use our online application form, as this is reserved for applicants for the full three-year degree programme. For more information on coming to AUC on exchange, please follow the link below.
