Don't miss the deadline!

The deadline for receipt of all kinds of supporting documents is 1 February. This means that the documents must arrive at the correct receiving address by the deadline. Keep it in mind that it can take several weeks for e.g. hard copies or official digital GMAT score reports to be delivered. You should therefore plan ahead and have them completed and sent out in time. If your supporting documents do not arrive on time, your application will be considered late and will also make you ineligible for scholarships.

Step 4: pay the application fee

If you are required to pay tuition fees, you should pay the application fee to University Admissions before the deadline. The deadline for receipt of application fee is 1 February. This means the payment need to arrive at University Admissions by the deadline. You should therefore find out how long it may take for the international payment transition and pay the fee in time. If the application fee is paid late, your application will be considered late and it will also make you ineligible for scholarships.
