Coronavirus COVID-19 information:
Owing to the global health crisis we will continue to monitor the feasibility of this programme taking place in 2021. A decision on this will be made in line with the government guidance and with the safety and security of all students and staff in mind. In the interim successful applicants for this programme will not need to pay the course fees until the situation becomes clearer.
