Admission Requirements

The requirements to be admitted into our bachelor programmes are:

  • A secondary school/high school diploma with evidence of a background in Mathematics

  • Proof of command of the English language, either IELTS (6.0) or TOEFL iBT (72) results.

Candidates are assessed holistically, where the key element in the process is the personal interview with the Programmes’ Director (in person or via Skype/Zoom). The main objective of the admission process is to admit candidates that can bring individual contributions to the cohort, while at the same time widen the school’s diversity to enhance participation and mutual learning among participants.
