Limited entry

Some courses and qualifications have a limit on the number of students they can admit.

To find out if the study options you're interested in have limited intake or selection criteria, you can search courses with limited entry, read the detail on the course page, or see the programmes by faculty with limited intake or selection criteria (below).

The limited entry deadline is 1 December 2020, 13 November 2020 for LAWS courses, and 15 February 2021 for POLS 428.

Programmes with limited entry

Selection process for limited-entry programmes

Each course or programme with limited entry has its own specific entry criteria. Top priority is usually given to students needing to complete the course for a particular major or specialisation. Remaining places are often allocated on academic merit and relevance to the student’s overall programme. Sometimes ‘first-come, first-served’ is applied, meaning students should pay particular attention to the enrolment deadlines.
