2. You will receive an invitation within 2 weeks of application to an assessment and be asked to book a suitable date via Eventbrite (various dates and times will be available the assessments take around 60mins per subject)

3. The outcome of the assessment will be discussed with you the day after the assessment and you will be able to see the course options available.

4. We will then send you an email inviting you to enrol online, and you will have 2 weeks to complete this to confirm you place on the course. (failure to do this within the timeframe will result in your place being released to another student)
