But before taking any step forward, please go through these three items:

As you fill in the application form, you will have the opportunity to attach and upload the documentation we need to verify your eligibility regarding our academic requirements. We recommend that you only upload the requested documents. Please make sure that all the documents needed have been uploaded to the platform at least 2 days before your admission interview.
