Q. Do applicants need to be a certain age?
A. We are targeting applicants of ages over 24. However, anyone over age 22 is welcome to apply. While a majority of the applicants will fall above this age, we will not discriminate based on age.

Q. Do applicants have to be nationals from OSCE member states?
A. We encourage individuals from all around the world to apply. We will not discriminate based on country of origin.

Q. Is English proficiency a requirement?
A. Because classes are conducted in English, English proficiency is a requirement. We would like to ensure that Fellows get the most out of their experience. However, we do not require applicants to be native English speakers. Many will, in fact, have other native languages.

A. Classes will run from Monday to Friday, from 8:30am to 6:30pm, and some Saturday mornings from 9:00am to 1:30am. This is an intensive course of a total of 220 hours.

Q. Is a laptop really needed?
 A. Most of your teachers will provide you with an electronic version of the content of their modules. You may print the reading list but it is preferable that you have it available from your computer for sustainability reasons and also so you do not need to travel with it.
Class assignments however will not be computer based, therefore, the organization will not provide internet access and computers.
