Each application is considered in its entirety, including transcripts, extracurricular and voluntary activities, work experience, personal background, letters of recommendation, personal statement and language skills. Through individual consideration, the Admission Committee seeks not only to identify individual characteristics that are important to academic success in the programme, but also other qualities that promote vitality, diversity, and excellence in the student body.
