A: Hello, I would like to apply for the pure and applied science program (2 years) for the winter 2021 semester, but I have no idea what the first step I need to take in order to get into the program is.

I think this sounds more natural.

I’m not sure what “pure and applied science program” is, so I can’t tell if that’s a translation or not.

‘Winter 2021 semester’ or ‘winter semester 2021’ both are okay.

When making a statement instead of asking a question, we separate the ‘what is’.
What is it?
I don’t know what it is.

I hope that helped and please let me know if you have any more questions ☺️
