In addition, many of our programs are highly competitive. Therefore, to better your chances of being accepted you should apply by the equal consideration date for each intake. The equal consideration date is February 1 for programs starting in September. For more details, click here.

In examining your application, we will determine if you have the necessary prerequisites to be successful in your program of choice. We will confirm that by a Letter of Acceptance. The letter will become a very important document for you. You cannot obtain a study permit without it.

We are not able to provide financial assistance to International students. Prospective students are encouraged to contact potential funding sources from their home country.
