Numerus fixus

Some Bachelor's programmes have a maximum number of available places (numerus fixus). There is a selection procedure for these programmes.

Numerus fixus programmes

When more students apply for a programme than there are places available, they will need to take part in a selection procedure if they wish to get a place on the programme. Five of the university’s Bachelor’s programmes are subject to numerus fixus.
