Preparation for Civil-Service Entrance Exams (PCA) – Admission

Students have two options:

  • Register only for the PCA (pool of courses that students can choose from based on their testing strategy; open selection, no attendance requirement); please note: access to the PCA is selective (written test + motivation interview).
  • Register for the PCA and the 2nd year of the Master's in Public Service Careers and National Exams (the courses for this program are the same as the preparatory courses; there is an attendance requirement and various electives for both semesters, as with any other Master's program). Before enrolling in the Master's program, you must have:
    • been approved for the PCA
    • paid the relevant fees for the PCA (in addition to the registration fees for the Master's program)
