Question Email Program Directly or Trust FREIDA and Program Website?

Is it recommended e-mailing programs separately asking about if we meet the criteria to apply for residency or is it better to stick to the information on FREDIA and the programs website?

If so, what should be written in the e-mail?

You can always contact the PC (not PD) to enquire about requirements that are not stated on the program's website
