Course dates & fees

Please note that the cut-off date for all Summer Pre-sessional courses is 9am on the first Wednesday of the course. The cut-off date for the Postgraduate Research Pre-sessional is 9am on Monday 7 October 2013.

Students who arrive after this time will not be permitted to join the course.
