D) Sub­mis­sion of ap­plic­a­tion & ad­mis­sion

  • Con­firm­a­tion of re­ceipt: All stu­dents who com­plete the on­line ap­plic­a­tion pro­cess on time, will re­ceive an auto­mated email con­firm­ing that their full ap­plic­a­tion has been re­ceived by the re­spons­ible WU co­ordin­ator.

  • Ad­mis­sion de­cision: All ap­plic­ants who com­plete the on­line ap­plic­a­tion pro­cess on time will be in­formed about the out­come of their ap­plic­a­tion via email by April 27, 2018. The of­fi­cial ac­cept­ance let­ter will in­clude fur­ther in­struc­tions on the pay­ment of the par­ti­cip­a­tion fee. The ap­plic­ants' place on the ISUWU pro­gram is only guar­an­teed once we re­ceive the pay­ment. As soon as the pay­ment reaches the ISUWU ac­count, ac­cep­ted ap­plic­ants will re­ceive a let­ter of con­firm­a­tion.

  • Al­loc­a­tion of courses: Dur­ing the on­line ap­plic­a­tion pro­cess, stu­dents are asked to rank the avail­able courses ac­cord­ing to their pref­er­ences. Please note that there is no guar­an­tee get­ting a place that cor­res­ponds to the pref­er­ence for a course. We try our best to ac­com­mod­ate stu­dents' pref­er­ences, but due to the lim­ited num­ber of places this is not al­ways possible.

  • In­form­a­tion pack­age prior to ar­rival: In May 2018 all ac­cep­ted stu­dents will re­ceive a so-c­alled ISUWU Pre-Ar­rival Guide with use­ful in­form­a­tion and de­tails about the sum­mer pro­gram. The par­ti­cipants will also be in­formed about the pre-­course assign­ments re­quired for their courses.
