If a positive decision is reached by the Ministry, a "Letter of Acceptance to studies" is issued and sent to POLITEHNICA Bucharest and at the diplomatic mission.

  • Proof of health insurance.

Admission process

The admission process of non-EU candidates takes the following steps:

  • POLITEHNICA Bucharest will submit the file to the Romanian Ministry of Education (the minimum period for processing the application is 60 days). If the application is successful, you will receive the official Letter of acceptance from POLITEHNICA Bucharest;
  • Next step is to confirm the place within 20 days by paying the tuition fees in advance for one year. Failure to pay the tuition fees will automatically result in the loss of place, which will be filled by the next candidate;
  • The Office for International Students will issue to the admitted candidates, who have confirmed the place, a document confirming the payment necessary for completing the file for obtaining the study visa.

For the Doctoral studies the first step is to obtain an approval from the prospective supervisor/coordinator of the thesis (POLITEHNICA Bucharest does not automatically provide a thesis supervisor). The next step is to pass the entrance exam for the Doctoral School. Admission to doctoral studies is organized in the sessions June-July 2024 (session I) and September (session II).
