PPLE uses its admissions procedure to bring together a group of talented and motivated students who will finish their Bachelor's degree within three years and with good results. The PPLE programme is focused on recruiting ambitious, talented, intellectually curious and socially responsible students who are looking for interdisciplinary challenges within their studies.
The selection criteria are intended to contribute to the enhancement of the students’ motivation, progress and commitment to the programme, and to a higher quality of the teaching and learning process based on more engaging student–teacher interactions.
In order to be considered for admission to PPLE, applicants must meet the following basic entry requirements; diploma level, grade point average, English proficiency, mathematics proficiency. Besides the entry requirements, PPLE utilizes other data such as performance on the written assignments and interview to determine a candidates’ suitability for the programme.
All applicants are weighed in comparison to one another and all aspects of one’s application are taken into consideration. Applicants can score a certain number of points in different categories. The higher the GPA the more points an applicant is awarded in this category. Points are also granted for the quality of a candidate’ personal statement and for English and mathematics if the grades are (expected to be) sufficient. In the second round applicants earn points based on their exam scores and the quality of their financial plan and study plan. In the third round candidates obtain points for their interview performance.
The Dean of PPLE College makes a final decision regarding who will be offered a conditional place.
