How to apply to the University Programme

Admissions for the 2024 University Programme are now open! Applications may be submitted via the Summer School's online application platform.

Application timeline and deadlines

The University Programme has rolling admissions. The admission jury meets regularly, and candidates may expect to receive a response approximately three weeks after submitting a complete application.

Courses are open to admitted students on a first-come, first-served basis and will be closed when they are full. Candidates are therefore encouraged to apply in advance to ensure availability in their first-choice class, if they are admitted. Please note that several courses offered in Summer 2023 were closed after reaching maximum enrolment and not all admitted candidates were able to choose their first choice of course.

The deadlines to submit an application for the 2024 University Programme are as follows:

  • June session: April 3rd, 2024
  • July session: April 17th, 2024
  • June & July sessions: April 3rd, 2024
