Guiding Tool 6: Management of the admission process

The paradigm shift from diploma recognition towards the assessment of competency level requires a different framework to judge an applicant’s qualification. When (automatic) continuation from a Bachelor into a Master’s within the same discipline, the same university, or the same country is no longer standard practice, this requires an active approach to marketing and recruitment.


This Guiding Tool may seem to be addressing issues that are rather self-evident. But experience shows that what is apparently matter-of-course, and especially the consequences of implementing this paradigm shift into the university’s systems and procedures, requires careful consideration. In this Guiding Tool we offer food for thought to organize the Master’s admission process in order to make it as accessible as possible, especially for the preferred applicants.
