Admissions aim to finalise any outstanding applications for entry to courses in Semester 2 by the end of the second week of semester ie 12 August 2016.

Any requests for late applications should be referred to the relevant Head of School for pre-approval prior to being forwarded to Admissions so that a personalised ADM form can be issued to the applicant.

From Monday August 15 until Wednesday 31 August, the “late” offer email template will advise students that they must submit a Late Offer Enrolment Form as online enrolment through Student Connect has closed.
