Cut-off dates

Due to the need to undergo pre-visa screening and apply for a student visa, International students must stick to strict cut-off dates. We recommend you apply as early as possible to allow enough 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, cut-off dates will be based on the orientation date of your EAP program, not the standard semester dates.

Please also note that some popular programs may have early cut-off dates due to program availability. Further information will be provided separately.
