ETH Zurich Answers for Bologna Application Period


dilan

Recommended Posts

Hi there! 

 

Has someone heard back yet? They are supposed to come back to the applicants until the 20th of June, and I am wondering whether they have sent out any answers so far? Becoming really impatient.. (I applied for the Computer Science Master's program in April)

I applied during the international application period for the same course. Best of luck to you! :)

Thank you! :)

How long did it take them to answer after you applied? And did you get accepted (if I may ask)?

The response came mid February, while I have applied for the mid December deadline. They actually said results would be out mid March at the latest, so they were quite early.

 

I got accepted and it was quite tough deciding where to go. Did you apply anywhere else?

I received an answer just yesterday and I got accepted! Very excited about this! :) Didn't apply anywhere else, since I missed deadlines of all other universities I wanted to apply at. Now I'm waiting for the official letter with additional conditions I might have to fulfil, but I will most probably accept.

Why did you decide to go to Oxford?

Congrats on your acceptance! :) You did your undergrad in a Bologna country so I think it is unlikely that you will have any additional requirements, but you never know.

 

It was mostly for three reasons: student/social life (Oxford has the collegiate system and I was guaranteed college housing), level of peers (Oxford is much more selective) and most importantly what I can learn from the course. My course at Oxford does not have written exams at all. It uses research papers as a means of examination. The ETH course is more traditional. Since their system is very similar to the system in my home country, I think a whole different course style will complement my education better. I feel the Oxford course will prepare me better for research or another job. Mind you that is was a tough call nonetheless. I could not go wrong with either of the courses/institutions. I recognize ETH's awesomeness. Otherwise I would not have applied there in the first place. ;)

Received the official letter and indeed, no additional requirements, just a bunch of documents I have to send. Thanks for sharing the information, didn't know all that about Oxford, but I was also interested in applying there. I am not really a research paper type of person, so I guess the ETH system suits me better. However, I really wished it had guaranteed student housing :( It's quite expensive and hard to find a place in Zurich. Best of luck to you in Oxford!

 

 

Ugh! I am still waiting! I hope I hear soon.. I only applied to ETH as well, and am getting nervous

Good luck to you, too! They should answer soon!
