I've applied — what happens next?

You will receive an automated email confirming that we have received your application and will be in contact as per the following stages:

  • You should complete your application form with as much detail as possible, as this information will be used to select interviewees, and then inform the interview process. Selected applicants will be invited to a group information session, followed by a one-to-one interview.
  • You will be offered an interview date, and will be invited to a group information session, followed by a one-to-one interview. In some campuses, this process may be by one-to-one interview only. If you have been asked to provide a reference, you should bring this reference to the interview.
