Bachelor Admission Calendar

Master Admission Calendar


Romanian candidates who graduated high-school or a bachelor/master study programme in a foreign country, other than Romania, must have their study documents recognized and validated by the Romanian National Centre for the Recognition and Validation of Diplomas (C.N.R.E.D.), part of the Romanian Ministry of National Education (M.E.N.).

The procedure for the validation and equivalence of diplomas can be done by the candidate, by submitting the necessary files directly to the Ministry of Education, or with the help of the International Relations Department, at W.U.T. The documents that have to be validated by the C.N.R.E.D. can be sent to the International Office, that will submit afterwards the documents to the the C.N.R.E.D. After receiving the Certificate for the Recognition of studies, the candidates will be able to register at the faculty of choice, at the summer or autumn admission sessions.

This recognition procedure also applies to other categories of citizens, such as:
- citizens with refugee status in Romania
- citizens from E.U. third countries that are married with a Romanian citizen;
