If English is not the mother tongue, applicants who have completed a full university degree through the English medium can submit a confirmation from the institution that the language of instruction was English.

Admission is contingent upon verification by the competent Academic Offices of validity of academic qualifications for registration and acceptance of the candidate onto the course. Should this be the case we will provide students information about additional readings after the formal admission: students must pass interview(s) with the referee(s) by the 30th of November 2017. Any requests for extension must be made to the Committee by the 30th of November and will be consired at the next meeting.
