A decision by the Scholarship Committee will be made quickly. In total, once granted admission, the whole process of review and outcome usually takes 1-3 weeks.

You will receive the decision via email, which will include the terms and conditions.

Secure your scholarship

If you have been offered a scholarship, it’s important to formally reserve your place in the program by the established deadline to secure it, if you haven’t done so already.
