Deadlines for 2020/21

Deadlines to begin study in October 2020

Applications are considered on a rolling basis throughout the year.

You may apply at any time,  but when deciding when to do so, please bear in mind that potential sources of funding for your studies do have specific deadlines.

Candidates who plan to apply for study grants from governmental sources, foundations or organizations (eg Visegrad Fund In-coming scholarships that have a January application deadline) should submit their application to the School in good time, and every effort will be made to inform these candidates about their admission status within the time frames needed for them to apply for such grants. Such applicants may also apply for financial aid from the School, (provided they do so by the deadline below) but they will be informed about their School financial aid status only in June/July after the competitive review of all other candidates has been completed –  see also the section How to apply

Applications with requests for financial aid  (tuition fee waivers etc) from the School itself:

These cannot be submitted after: May 8, 2020 June 30, 2020 (deadline extended in view of  disruption to services  caused by COVID-19 epidemic).

All other MA applications  (ie  without financial aid requests) will be considered when submitted, provided this is before: September 27, 2020 (but please remember that if you need to apply for a visa you might need our acceptance letter sometime before this date!).
