  • Step 3/3, Submit your data

    Have you provided all of the necessary data? Have you double-checked your submission? Once you hit the submit button and the file upload is complete, you will receive a confirmation about your submission via email with information on the next steps of the application process. You will also obtain an applicant number. Make sure to keep your number safe! It will be important in the next steps of the application. If you do not receive an email soon, please check your spam folder before contacting us.

    All applications will be assessed by an evaluation committee. In the beginning of June, we will publish the interview schedule on our website. To find out if you are invited to an interview, you will need your applicant number, since we will not use your name. If you have been invited to an interview, you should find your applicant number next to the date and time of your slot. If you cannot find your number, this means that you did not make it to the next stage of the application process.

    Good luck!
