starts on October 1 and ends on March 31.
Within this period, the online application form has to be filled out to be recognized as a potential candidate to the upcoming intake.

    ! Please note that only applications through our GPE online system will be considered.

Step 2: Completion of the Electronic Application

  3. By clicking on the application tab, you will be directed to the online application form.
  4. Fill all application fields and finish your electronic application
    by activating the checkbox for “submit application” which you will find bottom right corner.

! Only now your application is complete.

Due to long visa application procedures, an early processing of an application requires submission of the application well in advance of the deadline. Therefore, GPE employs a rolling admission system so that admissions can already be declared before the deadline. 

You are welcome to APPLY NOW 

Important: Please bear in mind that enquiries regarding the application process will be exclusively answered per e-mail, so please refrain from contacting us via telephone. Once you submit your application we kindly ask you to wait 2 weeks for our reply, before starting sending enquiry e-mails.
