Deadline for receipt of applications
The deadline for applications is four weeks before the start date of the course that you wish to apply for. If you are applying after this date, please contact us first at email@example.com to check that there are still places available.
It is then very important that you check you are able to get a visa in time to be present on the first day of the course, as unfortunately students are unable to start the course late. You will also need to check the availability of your flights.
