8. What are the steps of the admission process?

1) The first step of the admission process is the evaluation of electronic application files.
• Candidates may send scanned copies of their documents and receive feedback on the state of their application file (if any documents need to be added, or translated, or apostilled, etc.), so that the candidates may send a complete and eligible application file to the University's address. This stage allows us to help our candidates put together a complete application file, without having to ask them to send any additional documents that may be missing.
• All electronic files must be sent at bri@uaiasi.ro and all candidates will receive feedback on the state of their application file.
• For the summer admission session, the International Relations Office team starts checking electronic files starting from May.
For the autumn admission session, the electronic files will be checked starting from the end of the summer admission (end of July), until the end of August.

2) The second step of the admission process is the submission of the physical application files to the University, respecting the submission deadlines.
• If any candidate who wishes to apply to our University during the summer session cannot meet the deadline for the submission of their application file, for objective reasons (such as administrative delays concerning the legalization, translation and apostillation of documents - Hague Apostille), they may contact the International Relations Office team, bri@uaiasi.ro or by phone at +40 232 407.427, and discuss the situation. The University will receive their application file and keep it until the autumn admission session, when the candidate will be able to secure a place at our University.

3) The third step of the admission process is the admission interview, to which all candidates must participate.
• The EU students are invited to have the interview at the University. If there are any candidates who cannot come to the University for some reasons (eg. work related problems, health issues, etc.), then they must notify the International Relations Office team, bri@uaiasi.ro or by phone at +40 232 407.427, with at least 2 days before the initial planned date of the interview, and they will be given the option to have the interview via skype, at a date and hour agreed on by the admission committee.
• The non-EU students will have the interview via skype. Therefore, they must either create a skype account or use a friend's account.
• The date and hour of the interviews will be established by the admission committee. However, we are flexible and try to accommodate all our candidates' needs (such as working hours, time zone difference, etc.).
• The interview is not an eliminatory test. However, please bear in mind that if you miss the interview you will be considered rejected and your application file will not be taken into account.

4) The fourth and final step of the admission process is the confirmation of the place candidates have secured, following the publication of the list of admitted candidates.
• All candidates who are admitted will receive an email of confirmation of their admission from the International Relations Office team, containing some information regarding their enrollment.
• All candidates are kindly asked to confirm that they have received the email and that they will confirm their place at our University.
