After the entrance exams are over, CZU selects the prospective students and sends them an announcement (usually by the end of June). Should you be accepted, CZU will send you an official letter of admission. You may be eligible to receive proof of accommodation from CZU.
Apply for visa and arrange your proof of accommodation
