Assessment of Admission Qualifications (in general)

Q: Can a university add their own conditions for admission besides the national requirements?

A: The national requirements are minimum conditions for admission to universities that are set by law. An applicant should also be aware that each university is allowed to add its own admission requirements in accordance with the objectives for its education and research activities.

A university, however, must be able to logically explain such conditions when setting them.
