We’re here to help so it’s important you still come to your enrolment appointment so we can discuss all your options with you (there are lots more options than you think).

If you have a specific university or course in mind, we’d recommend you do some research to find out their entry requirements as this will help you make an informed decision on what you’d like to study.
