Generally, documents cannot be added to the application after the application deadline. The assessment of your application is performed based on the documents that you have chosen to upload by the application deadline. 

Further documents can only be added in cases where we are unable to assess the application based on the uploaded documents. In this case, you will receive a message in the application portal with instructions on how to add the missing documents.
