The department has developed an easy-to-read list of courses, entry qualifications and required tuition fees in brochures available at the office.

Applications are assessed on the basis of the information provided by the applicant on the application form and supporting documents. All admission decisions are made on the basis of merit and the ability of each applicant to meet the academic criteria for admission to the relevant programme of study.

The Institute reserves the right at 8any time before or during the progress of the programme to revoke the admission and/or registration status should it be found that the applicant used false documents or does not meet the Institute‟s criteria for admission.

Foreign applicants are charged US$ 40 for undergraduate or US$ 50 for postgraduate applications.

Postgraduate applicants with lesser qualifications are sometimes called for an interview or a matriculation examination sitting.

The selection process takes about four months, after which successful applicants are declared and notified by text messages, letters, media and Institute‟s website.
