REVIEWING OF APPLICATIONS & INTERVIEWS:
Reviewing of your applications by our Admissions Committee (chaired and co-ordinated by Rebecca Sakoun and further consistinng of the DAI's director and several DAI-alumni, practicing, researching and living in various locales across the world [from South Africa to North Africa to Canada to Europe]): pre-selected candidates will be invited (via e-mail) to one, possibly two Skype-interviews.
We see this interview as the hopeful beginning of a fruitful and perhaps ongoing dialogue between DAI and you, prospective member of our student body, and our wider community. We will not only have questions for you to respond to, we also heartily extend you the invitation to bring up your own questions (as far as they have not been answered by our website) about the DAI's ways of studying and living together.
AFTER THE ADMISSIONS TRAJECTORY:
In general, the outcome of the admissions trajectory will be communicated within 6-8 weeks (depending on the number of applications that have to be processed).

Those who will be invited to join our program have to confirm their placement by formally registering and enrolling. Instructions will be duly shared. Please be prepared: this involves making arrangements for the payment of your tuition (in installments, or otherwise as per September 2020) and, if applicable, your registration with the immigration office (non-EU passport holders who want to move to the NL) we urge you to carefully read ALL information under Finance and under Study within Dutch system. Our colleagues Rik Fernhout and Margret Wibmer will be available to advise you in regard to your "landing" in the Netherlands / Europe. Last but not least, caring former DAI-students have devised a document to help you with your landings in the Netherlands/Europe.
