EPA candidates need to have a clear interest in modelling and simulation, and proven ability of either modelling or programming. EPA candidates are preferably able to show their social engagement and/or interest in social and policy sciences from past (study) activities and/or experience. Candidates should have a good mathematical background including calculus and have a basic understanding of general statistics.

Various courses within the EPA programme make use of the Python programming language. Although you will become a specialist "on the job"  and advanced skills are not needed, it is advantageous to understand the basic principles of Python programming. To acquire some basic familiarity in Python, you could check out, or this book before starting the EPA programme.
