WHAT HAPPENS NEXT?

Once we receive the completed application form and required documentation, we will proceed through a three-stage selection process. We will:

1. review all submitted documents

2. set up an interview (by phone or via Skype) with the head of each programme, who will evaluate the candidate's motivations and career plans, as well as their personality and ability to take part in activities in a multicultural group.
Only MSc Wine Business applicants: shortlisted candidates are presented with a unique research question on which they have to write an essay. The essay will help the head of the programme to evaluate the candidate's professional background and understanding of wine business practices in the country of the candidate's origin.

3. present the application to the Admissions Committee, who will come to a final decision

All successful applicants will receive an official acceptance letter along with the Guide for International Students and information on the Induction Week that will take place prior to the start of the semester.
