Re: Advice (about writing the letter and related)

aphos, I don't know how it is elsewhere, but at our University you can request as many transcripts of records as you like (in our mother tongue) and you receive a bilingual transcript of records at graduation (called a diploma supplement). Although a little late, if you can, you could try and reques...

Re: Sexism

Offtopic, highly speculative: Maybe they'll post the list on Monday (last time they posted it on the 9th, a weekday), maybe they already posted it, but misplaced it (the website changed servers and structure last year). I'm also checking very regularly for it.

Unfortunately, although the program is funded in a percentage of 55.(5) by the EU, the japanese companies have the final word ove...

Hi, renna. I don't believe the delay counts as a study year, but since your study program is only 3 years long, and you are now in your last year, I suggest you apply. The forms on the application form do not require a password for changing/saving. The structure of the document, on the other hand, d...

It's not required anywhere, but you can attach a copy of it at the end of the list of documents if you deem it relevant. Remember, everything you send is non-returnable.
