Independent commission consisting of American professionals with education and international relations background selects the program participants and alternates. The selection is based on a fair competition that includes a complex application, a teacher’s recommendation, and readiness to participate in the program. Students will also be required to submit medical forms reflecting their health status.
Knowledge of English is an important component in the selection process, but not the only one. The selection process is complete by spring, and candidates will receive a status notification in May.
The finalists selections happens in three stages. Participants will undergo a 15-minute English language test in the first round. Competitors who pass to the second round will be required to write several essays, and if they successfully pass this round, they will participate in the third round. Semi-finalist students complete the application, write a complex English test, and undergo an interview.
