4. How to Apply
Given the large numbers of applications we receive for each class, we can only consider applications that are both complete and whose documents are properly labelled. Following the instructions provided on this page will help you to make your application a success.
In case, the current international public health crisis brought about by the coronavirus prevents you from gathering all required documents in time to meet the deadline, please submit your application without these documents and attach a sheet that lists the missing documents, the reasons why they are missing and when they will (in your best estimation) be available.
