Application Form


Deadline for applying for the 2017/18 programme was, for visa-requiring applicants, February 1. For all other applicants the deadline was April 1.

HOWEVER, you are very welcome to still send us an application for the waiting list as we always get cancellations over the summer. And since we have different requirements to fulfill (equal distribution of gender, nationalities etc.) it is not first come, first served; we look at all the applications we receive.

The next available course runs from August 28, 2017 to May 6, 2018.
