When making the admission decisions, we will process the applicant's options in the order indicated by the guardian, and if the child gets a place in the first option, the other options on the application form will not be processed. The choices are binding after the registration period, and if the child is selected for the study programme, the guardian commits to accept the place in the offered study programme.
