Students can send the application documents by email (preferred) or post. Following receipt, the Admissions Committee evaluates each application, a process that can take from 1 to 3 weeks. If the application is approved, then an Admissions Letter is sent to the applicant explaining:
- Total tuition fees and payment plan (Students are given the option of paying in 1, 2 or 15 installments).
- Details, duration and maximum time to completion of the program
Once the applicant decides to register, he/she pays an admission fee of $100 and an Enrollment Letter is sent to him/her which contains the prospective student’s access code (username and password) so that they may log on to the e-learning system. Here they will be able to access course materials.
