International Candidates

Non-EU Candidates

Non-EU international candidates must contact the International Relations Office of the University of Bucharest (Șoseaua Panduri, no. 90), where they must submit their application.

For further information about international admissions, please visit the International Students section on the official website of the University of Bucharest.

EU, EEA & Swiss Candidates

The application and admission process for Swiss, EU and EEA (European Economic Area) candidates consists of three steps – the same steps involved in the admission process for Romanian candidates.

Step 1. Submitting your application

Candidates must first submit their application at the Office of Admissions (Edgar Quinet St. 5-7). For full details about application procedures and the documents that your application must include, please visit the official websites of the FLLS and of the UB.

Applications normally include:

  • your filled-in application form (which you can download or receive from the Office of Admissions)
  • high school diploma (original or copy, the latter of which can be submitted only if the original is presented)
  • B.A. diploma (original or copy, the latter of which can be submitted only if the original is presented)
  • ID card or passport (copy)
  • birth certificate (copy, but only if the original is presented)
  • marriage certificate (copy, but only if the original is presented)
  • a letter of good health
  • 3 passport photos (3/4 cm)
  • the application fee payment receipt–candidates must submit their application fee at the Cashier’s Office (Șoseaua Panduri, no. 90, 050663, Bucureşti)

Step 2. Introducing yourself

Candidates must submit the following documents on the online platform dedicated to the MA admissions of the FLLS. These will be reviewed by the examination committee.

  • a CV
  • a letter of application
  • 1 letter of recommendation
  • 1 photo

Step 3. Interview

Candidates will be called for an interview. The interview will be held in English and its purpose is to test not only the candidate’s level of English, but also their understanding of cultural phenomena based on the admission bibliography. The selections included in the bibliography are listed on our website before the start of each application period. The bibliography can be requested by e-mail at any time, but physical copies of the books can also be found at the British Cultural Studies Centre.
