If you are applying to study a module, please note:

  • Applications should be submitted one month before the start of the module at the latest.  We cannot guarantee your application will be considered if you apply later than one month before the start date.
  • Applicants should only complete the basic information on the application form.
  • There is no need to provide a personal statement.

Please enter the following information in the ‘Personal Statement’ section of your application form:

  • Full title and the start date of your desired module
  • If you would like to take the assessment or not.  

We only require one reference; this can either be professional or academic. The application form will ask for two, but please enter the details of one referee in both sections. If your application is successful, you will be required to complete an online enrolment module and provide a valid ID (such as a valid Passport or Drivers Licence) to enable you to join the programme. Full information will be provided should you be made an offer.
