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
