From Tuesday 9 January 2018 we will start our bi-weekly blog. The Tuesday blog posts are intended for prospective students and will provide information on the application process, residences and what accommodation options are available. Our Thursday blog posts will be for our current students and will provide information about on campus events, residence updates, private housing and who is available. These blogs have worked really well for the past two years and we’re pleased to see them return.
