Please note however, that if you get admitted via Rolling Admission and accept your study place within 2 weeks from the decision as required, there is no point of applying during the once-a-year application period as even if admitted, you would not be able to change your decision for the accepted study place due to the rule of One Study Place per Term Provision.
