Frequently Asked Questions
APPLICATIONS - Why are there few or no institutions appearing in the drop-down list of my application?
The choices of institutions that appear on your on-line application are based on the age you have entered in your personal profile page.
- If no institutions appear in the drop-down list, it is because you do not have the age requirement to participate in Explore (you must be at least 16 years old before or on the first day of the course). If you believe you do meet the age requirement, check your personal profile, as you might have made a mistake in your date of birth (i.e., indicating you were born in 2016 instead of in 2000).
- If there are just a few institutions appear in the drop-down list, it is because you are only seeing the institutions that accept students your age. Make sure that you did not make a mistake in your date of birth on your personal profile page.
- Please note that for the 16+, 17+, 18+ and 19+ programs, you must have the required age before or on the first day of the program.
For example, if your 18th birthday is on July 6, you would be able to apply to 18+ programs that start on July 6 or after, but not to those starting on July 5 or before.
- For the 16-17 and 16-18 year-olds programs, you must have the required age before or on the first day of the program, as well as for the entire duration of the program.
For example, for a 16-17 year old program running from July 3 to August 6, you must be 16 or 17 before or on July 3, and not turn 18 before August 6.
No exemptions can be made on the age criteria.
