An International Student’s Guide to Admission Results Lingo

Students who have already applied and submitted all the necessary documents are eagerly waiting for the admission results which will be published on 09 April 2021, in less than a month now. I can imagine the restlessness and uncertainty prevailing in the student’s mind since we were in the same place two years ago. In this blog post, I write about lingos that an international student needs to be aware of while waiting for the admission results.

Qualified/Unqualified – You might have already received that you have met or not met the entry requirements for the master’s programme. However, just qualifying does not guarantee admissions. It means that you have met the entry requirements of the specific master’s programme and the university will decide further which will be communicated to you on 09 April 2021. If you want to appeal the decision that you are unqualified, check the process here. Appeals can be made once the admissions results are published.

Conditionally admitted – This is the most common result that appears for international students who have secured admissions. However, the condition implies that admission is guaranteed if the student pays the tuition fees before the deadline. The deadline will be communicated to the students in advance.

Reserve – Reserve refers to the applicant being on the waiting list for the master’s programme. Since each master’s programme and university have limited places to offer, suitable students are offered admissions. The rest of the applicants would be on the waiting list.

Deleted – A master’s programme will appear as deleted if
1. the applicant does not meet the entry requirements of the specific master’s programme
2. the applicant has already been offered a place in a master’s programme which has been given a higher priority
