What do I need for my application?

What is my chance to obtain visa confirmation for the one-year preparatory course? Are there countries that might have problems with finalizing the visa process?

The Language Centre deals with a high number of applicants every year. In the last couple of years, applicants from certain countries such as Morocco, Algeria, Egypt, Nigeria, Ghana, Cameroon, Congo, Bangladesh, Syria, and also Russia and Belarus had problems obtaining their visas and the success rate was close to zero. Should you be a citizen of any of those countries, please keep in mind that the administrative fee is non-refundable and we cannot speed the process up in any way.
