How late can I apply?

There is no final date for applications, however, any places available after the course has started are at the discretion of the Department Head. Some of our courses are very popular and early application for all is recommended.

How many courses can I apply for?

Most students will study one full-time programme at the appropriate level to suit their needs. The website or prospectus will advise you on the courses and the entry requirements. If you are unsure at the time of applying, you can apply for more that one course. Your interest might be in two completely different areas and although you will have to attend two different interviews this will allow you to talk to the tutors in order to make up your mind.

What is a remitted fee?

This is a concession to enable individuals on low income to study certain courses. The rules are complex and not all courses are eligible, therefore this will be explained to you by the advice centre staff.
