How to Apply

There are 2 admission intakes a year - January and July - for most of our part-time undergraduate programmes. You can apply for admission all year round. Applications received between 1 October and 31 March (dates inclusive) will be considered for admission to the July intake and applications received between 1 April and 30 September (dates inclusive) will be considered for admission to the January intake. Please refer to individual programme pages for their specific application periods.

The offer of admission depends on the number of places available in individual programmes. You are encouraged to submit your application early to avoid disappointment. In the event of overwhelming demand and limited vacancy, priority will be given to eligible applicants who applied early. The decision of the Admissions Committee of the University is final and binding and no reason will be given for the non-admission of unsuccessful applicants.
