Can I apply using a PC at my workplace?

There are no restrictions from the university on what kind of PC you should use when applying for the admission as long as it is connected to the Internet and can print documents such as application guidelines and application forms. However, you should be careful of your office PC's settings as registration includes the input of your important personal information.

Can I apply using my free email account (Yahoo Mail, Gmail, etc.)?

There are no restrictions from the university on what kind of email account you should use as long as it can receive notification emails automatically sent by our server at the time of application or after payment of screening fee. However, there are cases where you won't receive such automatic emails as some email companies mistake them as spam or virus-infected emails.

Moreover, undelivered emails may not arrive to our email center. In that case, be informed that our email center cannot learn about the failure of your email's delivery.

This is a problem on the e-mail provider's system or the mailer's (PC and mobile) configuration, so we are afraid that our email center cannot provide solutions to solve the problem.

Can I use my mobile phone's email account for registration?

Do not use your mobile phone's email account for registration. Only use email accounts that can be viewed on your PC.
