The application process

Applicants are given up to one year from their application deadline date (July 31, 2023 for English applicants) to complete their applications. The online system will check for all required documents before you can submit your application, so you cannot proceed until you have collected everything. If you don’t have time now, leave your application in draft status and work on it later. There is no disadvantage in having a draft instead of an active application during that time.
