If you are considering applying this year or would like feedback on your suitability for the program, we strongly recommend that you complete a preliminary information form.

To get a feel for the program, why not attend one of our upcoming  information sessions? Having the opportunity to meet members of our academic team and alumni will give you a clear understanding of the admissions process and the program.
