Fall Semester

Selecting a group December 15 – January 15 June 15 – July 15
Paying the fee January 1 – 20 July 1 – 20

On the first day of enrollment, you will receive an email with group registration link. Students with confirmed admission may proceed to select a group during the enrollment period stated above depending on the semester. Students will be able to find the group registration link also in the Site News announcement.

Please note that selecting a group does not mean that the group will be opened. A minimum of 8 applicants is required to launch the classes in the group.

Important: By selecting a group, you agree to pay the course registration fee once the group is opened.



If the group, which you have chosen, reaches the minimum of 8 applicants, it is going to be opened and you should pay the course registration fee within the required period (that time easy payment instructions will be sent to you in an email). You may now check the fees here.

Kindly do not pay the fee if you have not received an email confirming that the chosen group has been opened.



The classes in the groups that have been opened will commence in the first week of February or August depending on the enrollment semester.
