Step 2: Application Review & Interview

The admission process includes the reviewing and evaluating of each application on an individual basis for an applicant's abilities as a student. If approved, you’ll be contacted by an admissions team member soon thereafter in order to schedule an online interview.

The interview will give the university the opportunity to clarify issues arising from the application as well as permitting an assessment of the personality profile of the applicants. It will also allow an understanding of the expectations of the applicants regarding the course. It also is the chance for applicants to ask all open questions. To gain acceptance, applicants must pass the formal admission interview.

Step 3: Admission Decision

Usually once per week the Admissions Committees get together and decides about admission based on previous education performance, the motivation and general impression, work experience, interview performance and academic aptitude. If approved, students will be informed about their acceptance and admissions documents will be sent to them.
