Late applications

Some programmes allow late applications after the deadline has passed. Programmes for which admission is still open have an “Add” button next to the title. However, just because a programme is still open it does not necessarily mean that places are still available.

Submitting a late application and being eligible for a programme does not guarantee a place. Your chances of being accepted depend on the number of students who applied before the deadline and accepted their place. Please note that late applications do not entitle you to apply for a scholarship.
