Whilst we aim to give you a decision on your application by the deadline date, in some instances due to the competition for places and the volume of applications received, it may be necessary to roll your application forward to the next deadline date. If this is the case we will let you know after the deadline date.

We can only process applications that are submitted with the following supporting documents:

  • Online application form
  • First and second year transcripts (translated if not in English)
  • A list of your final year units and a GPA certificate which shows your current average, expressed as a percentage and verified by your current institution.
  • Two academic reference letter s, ora professional reference letter if you graduated more than two years ago

You need to ensure that you submit your supporting documents with your application as it may delay us processing your application before the decision deadline.

Applications received after our final selection deadline will be considered at our discretion.
