FAQ about the application process

What happens if my registration fee doesn't arrive in 8 days? (students only)

Please make the payment of the registration fee asap, because myCSI system will automatically delete your application if your registration fee doesn't arrive in time. In this case we will be very sorry because you will have to fill out a new application all over again and upload the files once more.

When is the application deadline?

You can see the deadlines in our timetable in Apply menu. Please note that application periods start and end at different dates, depending on your chosen role (student / visitor / volunteer).

What does scholarship deadline mean? (students only)

If you submit your application after the scholarship deadline, you cannot apply for scholarship. Your scholarship feedback also has to arrive by the scholarship deadline.

How can I meet the deadline? How do you know when I've finished my application?

Since myCSI lets you log in, start your application, then log out, and continue some other time, we could never be sure of the point when you no longer want to make changes to your application. This is why you have to decide the point when you don't want to make any more changes, and at this point you have to submit your application on the Summary page. Now we know you are ready, and we can also see if you have met the deadline.

How can I apply for scholarship? (students only)

To apply you have to fill out and submit the myCSI application form. In the Courses page you will be able to apply for Scholarship. You have to give a detailed explanation of your need, and upload as many documents as possible to justify your need. Please note: in order to be able to apply for scholarship, you have to submit your application before the scholarship deadline, and you also have to send your feedback before this deadline.

How will the Board decide about my scholarship? (students only)

What is the feedback? (students only)

After submitting your application, you’ll get an email informing you about the scholarship letter available on the website. The feedback is at the bottom of the scholarship letter. Please read our letter carefully.

How do I upload the feedback in myCSI? (students only)

You may either fill out the feedback on your laptop, or print it and fill it out in ink. You can then scan or photo your feedback and upload it to the Files page of myCSI either in pdf, word, jpg or png format.

Is it possible to participate at CSI for a shorter period only?

In the previous years CS has been a 2-week course, and students could choose to participate both weeks or 1 week only. Based on the Board's decision CSI is shorter this year than before, because from artistic point of view participating at CSI from beginning to end is much more fruitful, and it is our hope that due to this change most of the students will be able to participate full-time. Therefore we suggest students to try to take part from the beginning. Unfortunately in case you cannot participate full-time, we cannot guarantee that your application will be accepted. Please also note that when deciding about scholarships, full-time applicants will be preferred. In case you decide to apply for a shorter period, please contact us via your Message board, and CSI admin can set the dates for you.
