Dates and Deadlines

Your application must be received on time. Decisive is the date of receipt at TUK and not the date of the postmark.

Application deadlines for degree programmes with limited enrolment are cut-off deadlines. This means that late applications can no longer be considered in the admission procedure for the semester in question.
