Get ready!
The ONLY required document you need for the application is your official overall GPA transcript. At some universities, it may take some time for Department of Academic Affairs to issue a completed overall GPA transcript so you should prepare it in advance, even before the application opening date.

Optional document includes your certificate of achievement/scholarship/social activity… at university or in community. Please have all the files scanned and saved in PDF format.


The achievement, social activities and project and work experience are not technically required, which means that the system does not force you to fill in these parts to submit your application form. The reason for this is because we do know that some students do not have any achievement/social activity/project/work experience in their university life. If the system requires them to fill in, they will be in trouble. However, in term of screening and processing, we do take these parts into considerations, with proportion of score.

If you have any achievement/social activity/project/work experience, you should obviously show us, then you must upload the certificate to prove it.   

You can see the point here: You can skip the whole part, or answer all the questions in it.
