Pre-enrollment and Scholarly Projects


International students might be particularly interested in the Pre-enrollment process which starts early in the year and is aimed at identifying outstanding applicants and guiding them through the enrollment process.


A limited number of students will also be offered the opportunity to participate in a Scholarly Project - a 2-year project where the student gains experience by working on a real-world industry or research problem as part of their Master’s coursework. Such students will be provided with financial support, including tuition.
