Postgraduate Admissions

Admission is open for Ethiopians as well as international students that could be granted on competitive basis. Apart from the stated requirements for admissions into the different study programmes, Special Criteria for Admission may also be set when deemed necessary, through entrance exams, interviews or by reviewing merits already attained.
