Admission to ADVETI Institutes

Most students applying for a place in an ADVETI Institute enter in the Fall term at the beginning of the academic year in September, but admission is also possible at the beginning of the Winter term in January.

All students are notified of the outcome of their application by the Institute of their choice.
