Who is required to submit an APS certificate?

All applicants from Vietnam and China (not Hong Kong, Macao or Taiwan) do need an APS certificate. The APS certificate is essential for the application process. Unfortunately it is not possible to accept someone with a missing APS certificate, where it is required.

 

Who is required to submit an IELTS or TOEFL test?

We do require either a TOEFL or an IELTS test from all applicants whose previous degree was not conducted in English. In a TOEFL test applicants should at least reach 85 points. In an IELTS test applicants should at least reach an average of 6. These scores are equivalent to the level B2 of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages.

 

Do I have to send the documents also via regular mail?

No. We do only require scanned copies for the application. If you have been accepted we will inform you about the following procedure in detail.

 

Until when do I have to provide the supporting documents?

All supporting documents should be provided within 2 weeks after submitting the online application. Please be aware that we can only consider complete application packages.

 

What if I don't have my degree certificate yet?

We are aware that degree certificates are not provided right away, and some applicants may still be in their last semester. In this case it is sufficient to provide some proof that you either have completed your studies or that you are still studying, including the estimated end of study. If a provisional certificate has been issued, please submit this then.

 

What is meant by "short cover letter"?

In the short cover letter we would like you to state your connection to MAP. This includes for example your professional interests and background.
