Please search the forum. I remember there is a lot of comments on this.

Short answer however: Yes, international experience can be (very) helpful. Do you still have a chance without? Yes, totally (just make up for it with other skills).

I can tell you about this year's participants that only half of us have had international experience ( studying or working abroad ).

No one can tell you that (and both are important). Personally, I believe that a very very good motivation letter can get you shortlisted albeit a lack of content (aka experience, skills) on the application form.

I feel like the application form is pretty generic, in the sense, if two people have similar experience, then the motivation letter/prof letter is what differentiates them more than the application form which is mostly a listing of past experience.
