An additional intake is offered in year 2 (M2) depending on availability and applicants’ profiles. The minimum admission requirements for M2 are:

Alternatively, applicants to year 1 and year 2 who do not meet the requirements stated above, but have significant formal training, relevant professional experience, and/or knowledge or expertise may be granted admission.
