How to apply

Depending on the course you are interested in, there will be one of two apply routes:

Before you apply you might want to read the information on fees and financial assistance. You may be entitled to a fee remission or wish to apply for financial assistance before enrolling. To find out more about financial assistance and fees please visit our finance page.
