Early Interview Option

Early interviews have finished but applications are still open for the late interview process. This will continue until the end of September. An offer of a place does not guarantee a place – only full payment of fees will move an applicant to registered status. If an offer is not accepted in time and a course is full then applicants will be added to a waiting list and have the opportunity to apply for another course.
