1. Complete the Online Application Form
The online application form will be made available in mid-March 2019. In the meantime please send us your expression of interest. If you have any questions, please contact us using the contact form, or by sending us a Facebook IM.
Please note that completing the online application form or expression of interest does not mean that you have been accepted to the course and it does not legally oblige you to do so. We will contact you regarding your application once you have registered, to confirm that you wish to study at the BLC.
2. Send us your further application documents
As part of the application process, we require you to send us a recent (English language) CV and a motivation letter (explaining your own reasons for wishing to study at the BLC). Please send these to this email address once you have submitted the application form (making sure that you indicate which BLC centre you are applying to – e.g. Lviv, Gdansk, Sofia, Budapest etc.).
We use these documents to decide whether to formally offer you a place at the BLC. We may ask you to attend an interview if we have any doubts about your application documents.
3. Receive our response to your application
Once you submit your application and supporting documents (i.e. CV and motivation letter), we will contact you with a decision regarding your place on the Diploma Course, or invite you to an interview to discuss your application.
If offered a place, you have 14 days to consider if you wish to withdraw from the course, in accordance with the BLC Cancellation Policy. Please do not worry about the formality of these policies – we are required by EU law to have them, but we obviously don’t try to force people to attend the course if they decide (after registration) that they do not wish to attend the course at all. So you need not worry about applying early and then changing your mind before the course starts – we won’t be trying to chase you through the courts to force you to attend or make you pay for a course you never attended!
