Please note that at this time, as the on-campus postal service is disrupted and staff are working remotely, we would ask you to send your application via email to

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 PDF document, not as separate pages.

Please save your file under First Name /Last name / Course title

Should the only option be to send your application by post, please send only one copy (not the three copies requested on the application form) and ensure to inform the admissions office by email to expect your application in the post.
