  • • Why do you apply for a programme/study branch that is specifically oriented towards preparation and training for a subsequent biomedical engineering clinical practice, health service management or scientific research?
  • • Why do you think that you are suited for such a programme/study branch?
  • • Do you have any idea about the topic of your future thesis (master project)?
  • • How will you fit in a class of students from all over the world, all with different backgrounds?
