Individual selection procedures for universities

A selection procedure designed to meet your own needs

Does your university or degree programme set special requirements for students? Do your scholarship holders need to have certain abilities and qualities in order to be successful, and do they need to have values that are in line with your scholarship programme? Do you have a large number of applicants? Do you want to have an aptitude test or a selection process that allows you to identify the best applicants?

We support you to solve these or similar situations. We develop selection process tailored for your demands and support you in its implementation and evaluation. Designing and developing selection instruments (e.g. tests) it is important to make it apparent to the participants why, this question or exercise is being asked during the selection process (= content validity). We conduct evaluations to check validity and fairness. In addition, we cooperate with a scientific advisory board of renowned scientists and pay great attention to data protection.
