NB: Postal Applications (updated 02/04/20):

Please note that at this time, the on-campus postal distribution service is not in operation, so if you have sent your application in towards the end of the week ending 27th March 2020, there is a strong likelihood it has not been received. We would ask, if possible, to re-send a copy of the application and any supporting documentation (transcripts, references, etc,) by email to Where possible, as staff are working from home and do not currently have access to printers & scanners, to help ease administrative workload, we would ask that applications be sent as one complete document, not as separate pages. There are some free scanning apps which will help you do this from your preferred mobile device, such as, for example, Adobe Scanner and Genius Scan. We understand that this may not be possible in every instance however, and welcome your application in whatever electronic form is manageable.

Please note that application forms in Word format are available on request by sending an email to Barbara Mahon at Please clearly state which course you are applying for.
