June 2017 sitting

In view of the demand for places on the OSCE in November 2016, we are increasing our capacity for 2017 to 3 runs of OSCE Part 1 (subject to demand). This has meant changing the dates for OSCE Part 2 in June 2017 from 12 - 14 (15) June to 20 - 22 (23) June. We hope that this will not cause any inconvenience to candidates.
