We will receive roughly 15 applications for each and every seat available on this course. This will make the work of the selection board though but interesting. The process will be as following:

  • Selection Board will decide on shortlisted and waitlisted applications (end March 2018)
  • Shortlisted candidates will be asked to confirm their seats bindingly
  • Should not all shortlisted candidates confirm their seats, these will be offered to candidates on the waitlist on “first come first served” basis
