Due to the statistics, around 68% of the applicants live in Syria, while 20% live in Syria’s neighboring countries, and the rest are distributed in Germany, Hungary, KSA, UK, and India. Based on the same statistics, 65% of the applicants hold a bachelor’s degree whereas 26% have a master’s degree.
By the time of application, 11% of the applicants who are residents in Syria, Jordan and Lebanon announced that they are accepted/short-listed in a scholarship; around 42% of those did not provide a valid documentation of their status. All applicants, who provided a documentation of their status as accepted/short-listed in an international scholarship, were granted the financial support for the language exam. We either paid on their behalf, or reimbursed the fees.
