Applicants must submit a detailed statement of their proposed research project and/or a portfolio of creative works. This helps the admissions committee evaluate the research idea's originality and feasibility.

Our flexible programme structure, distinguished faculty, and state-of-the-art resources are designed to support and inspire you in this transformative journey."
