Step 1: Complete your application

The application form consists of 11 sections, and while it may look intimidating on the surface, it should only take you around 15 – 20 minutes to complete. You will be asked to secure two references as part of your application. A reference is a note written by an independent person (such as a teacher or manager) to testify to your skills, character, experience, and/or achievements relevant to this programme. You can choose to include these in the space provided in the application form or include these as an attachment when you email us your application.

Step 2: Email your application and supporting documents to us

Please send your completed application to our admissions team (service@eiagroup.com) along with your passport-like photo and any supporting files requested in the application form, such as your certificates, awards and/or your references.


Step 3:

Upon receipt of your application, we will review your information and any supporting documents and respond to you within two working days to confirm your acceptance on to the programme. In some cases, we may require further information, in which case, we will follow up with you and outline exactly the information we require to complete your application.
