Selection Criteria
Right of entry into programmes of study is restricted by SIT and apparent eligibility may not lead to automatic acceptance. Applicants must demonstrate attributes that, in the assessment of SIT, should lead to success.
Where SIT is satisfied that it is necessary to do so because of insufficiency of staff, accommodation, or equipment it may determine the maximum number of students who may be enrolled in a particular course of study. Where the number of applications for enrolment exceeds the number of places in any case where such a limitation applies, the criteria for selection shall be academic merit and suitability for admission to that course of study. Eligible students not admitted to their chosen course of study will be placed on a waiting list and/or referred to another programme. Applications should be received by SIT no later than the due date. Late applications may be considered, subject to availability of places.
Applicants may be required to attend an interview, or if they live at some distance from the campus, complete a telephone interview. Applicants may be required to provide copies of applicable certificates and evidence of previous achievements prior to the interview date.
