6. Can I submit my English Certificate after the E+ Scholarship deadline?
Yes. Those students that do not have the certificate by the deadline, can submit the application without the Certificate. In that case, you need to attach this form (English Certificate) or your exam registration in order to finish the admission process. This form can also be used by the English-native speakers’ students, as the UAB internal system will ask to upload some English Certificate as a mandatory document. In case you are accepted into the program (announced on March, 20th) this students will be issued a “conditional acceptance” upon submission of the English Certificate before May, 1st.
