Please read the following directions carefully and before starting the application process.

Below is the list of the documents you need to prepare or arrange for submission:

1. Online Application Form

SUN's Online Application Form, delivered by Embark, enables the online submission of the application form itself as well as all other relevant documentation, including CV's and resumes, letter of recommendation, statements of purpose and application essays (such as research proposal, case study, paper proposal, writing samples, academic records, etc.), eliminating all paper mailing to the SUN Office.

In addition, applicants will be able to use this system to track their progress and learn the outcome of their admissions evaluation online. Admissions decisions will be available to applicants as soon as they are entered into the system.

Applicants may apply to maximum two courses. Please note that if you are going to apply to two courses, you must submit a separate application for each. In such cases you should upload a separate set of attachments customized, if necessary, to the differing needs and requirements of the two courses. You will be required to rank them in order of preference, starting with the one you are most interested in. Please make sure your ranking is consistent in both of your applications - if it is not, your applications may not be considered.

Applicants can only be accepted to two courses if the two courses are run consecutively. (Financial aid is only available for attending one course.) In such cases please mark both courses as "Preferred Course" and inform the Summer University office at about your special preference.

Detailed user's instructions for the new online application are included in the form itself. Should you have questions regarding the application form, check the SUN Online Application Form Frequently Asked Questions.

2. Letter of Recommendation
Applicants must have one letter of recommendation submitted. Please arrange for a letter of recommendation to be written by a referee (faculty member, job supervisor, etc.) who can attest to your abilities, qualifications and academic/professional performance. Please advise the referee about the title and content of the course you are applying to. The letter must be completed in English and submitted by the referee online via the online application facility.
