  1. Dear Erjona,

    For each program there is a different deadline, therefore it is only July,2012 on the post as a deadline. For example, you have the 15th of July as a deadline for Childhood studies. Some of the programs have their deadlines now in the end of June – they are excluded from the post. And beware that undergraduate and graduate programs have also different deadlines, maybe some of the undergraduate has expired in January or February.
