2) Group inter­view: all inter­views will be conducted in groups. It is not possible to have private inter­view. You cannot impact which group and what time your exam or inter­view will take place. People who will inter­view you are all staff members of partic­i­pating univer­si­ties of applied sciences. 

It is impor­tant to answer all ques­tions clearly. Please make sure you will partic­i­pate in the conver­sa­tion actively but make sure you do not talk all the time. Let others also answer ques­tions.  

Both the written exam and the group inter­view will test and assess your English language level, moti­va­tion and ability to start studies.
