The following programme starts to accept applications for the 2023-24 Intake on 1 September 2022. Applicants are strongly encouraged to submit their applications and upload all application materials in the "Online System for Applicants of Postgraduate Programmesas soon as possible since (i) The Admission Panels will start reviewing applications once required application materials are received. Applications will not be reviewed only until the end of every Round; (ii) Competitions at later rounds are more competitive as places are fewer and fewer.
