Good luck and remember to have fun!

After assessment, portfolios must be collected

from the department before December 2017.

The portfolio we are asking you to compile is done for two reasons. One – completing all tasks will show your

suitability for being accepted into the programme. Two – as our enrolment target is based on the capacity of our

infrastructure, we can only accommodate a limited number of applicants. It is important that you complete the

tasks to the best of your ability.

The portfolio is a compulsory requirement
