During the application, you will need to submit a formal letter from your university stating you will finish your Bachelor of Science programme before your enrolment in the S-DISCO master programme. Also the transcript of records, incl. all courses still on-going, should be given as well as the results up to the moment of application.
Do I need to include legalized documents (diploma/transcripts) when submitting my initial application?
No, this can be done in a later stage after you are selected for the programme. However, when you are selected, the legalization procedure should be started immediately, as it can take some time to finish.

Yes, this is allowed.
Do I need to (re)submit all application documents when applying to the programme for a second time?

Documents from previous application rounds are automatically archived by the selection committee and will not be transferred. When applying to the programme for a second time, take into account the received feedback and update the application documents accordingly. As is the case during the first application procedure, the latest version of the recommendation forms needs to be submitted by two independent referees. Applicants are not allowed to submit (older versions) of the recommendation forms themselves.
