Due to the need to undergo pre-visa screening and apply for a student visa, International students must adhere to strict cutoff dates. It is recommended that you apply as early as possible to allow adequate time for processing.
Please note: many students will package an English and Academic Preparation (EAP) program with their main program. If you will be studying an EAP program, cutoff dates will be based on the orientation date of your EAP program, not the standard semester dates.
