There are three (3) steps that ALL applicants have to fulfill in order for their application to be considered. After completing Step 3, allow several weeks for the application committee to evaluate your application and for the administration to get back to you. If you are applying for the short summer courses go to ‘Summer School’ and choose your course to apply.
STEP 1: (Essay)
Write a 200-300 word essay specifying your reasons for applying to this particular school and describing your expectations for your stay here. Tell us also about your plans for future education and occupation and your hobbies and interests in general. Please answer the following three questions in particular:
1) How and why did you choose IPC and what aspect(s) of the IPC experience are you particularly looking forward to?
2) What are your interests, personality, goals and dreams?
3) How do you want to use your IPC experience in the future?
Save this essay in a text editor (Ex: Microsoft Word), and have it ready for Step 2.
STEP 2: (Online application form)
Fill out the online application form (opens in a separate window). It takes only 10-15 minutes. Under Essay, you will need to paste the essay you wrote in Step 1. Read carefully and accept the IPC General Terms and Conditions by ticking the appropriate box. Then submit the online application.
STEP 3: (Print, sign, scan and send)
Print out the Application and the Letter of Attorney as instructed in the pop-up window that is going to appear at the end of the online application procedure (the same links are going to be sent to your email address as well). Sign and scan the printed application and letter of attorney and attach them to an email together with a passport photograph. Send them to firstname.lastname@example.org. Remember to email your application well in advance. The visa process can easily take five or more months depending on your country of origin.
