Applications and selection are continuous, and are processed as they arrive. Don't miss out on your preferred course by applying late. Depending on the number of participants, there may be a waiting list. Applications received less than one week before a course may not be accepted.
Candidates are selected by means of an application form, a pre-interview task and/or an interview in person (or by phone/Skype for applicants outside of Christchurch)
