Application & registration

Humanities Building

Once the application and supporting documentation have been received by Admissions, your details will be captured and the application referred to the faculty. The faculty staff will in turn check the documents submitted and, if admission criteria have been met, send a memo to the HOD/Programme Convenor enclosing the supporting documentation for consideration.
Decisions to accept or refuse applicants are made by departments but will be conveyed to you by the faculty. You will receive a letter from the faculty advising you of the outcome in due course, but do take into consideration that final results are needed before departments can make decisions and in some instances, the decision will be deferred until undergraduate and honours results are supplied.

Admission through the recognition of prior learning is possible in appropriate circumstances.
