Re: 2015 Applicants

Hi, The motivation letter you wrote now is only for the selection team, the company will receive another one, which you have to write specifically for the position. They forward all the other documents for you. You have to choose 1 placement, (but a 2nd placement can also be chosen) then write the l...

All we know is there are 3 placements only for male participants, because they only have male dorms.

Re: Forum improvement

I think we should make a poll about the requested or prefered positions among the shortlisted users, instead of just typing it in... It would help us (at least among this forum's users) to see how are we diveded among the placements. Someone might give up on the best desired position to a not so mai...

Re: Will they tell us that they have received our file?

Anyone sent it her/himself? My university told me they won't send it, do it myseld, so I'm a bit concerned about it: they don't want registered mail, why? (my guess is, they don't have manpower to receive so many letters personally). But isn't sending by courier does the same thing? Kinda nervous ab...

Re: Advice (about writing the letter and related)

I'm getting so nervous... so should I write my bachelor degree into B-C, not B-A17? What could they mean by "additional academic result" other than that?
One last thing: did last year the placement document contain this few positions, or should we expect an update till 20?

I haven't read anywhere (yet), but shouldn't the graduation certificate (of the bachelor course) be attached somehow?

Re: Advice (about writing the letter and related)

Hello! 3 U I think, but you might not have enough academic years from what you wrote... I don't know if it has been changed or not, but even the form says in B-A6 that applicants must be at LEAST in their 4th year, what you would start in fall... You can try at beast with 3 U + 0 M if you are alread...

Re: Advice (about writing the letter and related)

Merry Xmas for everyone! I also have some questions about the Application form: First, in the B-A7 and B-A9 is it acceptable to write half years? As at my university it's more common to count semesters not years, my education takes odd semesters... The other one is about B-C. We are supposed to writ...

Thanks for your fast answer! No, I'm planning on applying for ViJ in 2014, and now I am summing up what I have to do or achieve during that time.
