The application form requires you to fill in your personal details, including information about your qualifications. Once you have completed this, you will receive an Application ID number, which will allow you to save and resume the application if you wish. Or, you can proceed onto the next step.

At this point you will be asked to provide proof of your qualifications. We need to see the qualifications you hold, and it must be the certificate or transcript. You must also fill in a 200-word, first-person, personal statement to support your application.
