How to Apply

You may apply through the Centre for International Programmes in one of two ways: you may either ask the CIP to locate a university place for you, or you may obtain an offer of admission to a university and then apply for the Bolashak funding. Our students tend to choose the second option, as this can speed up the process of obtaining a scholarship.
