Stage 1 – Assessment of high academic achievement
Information you provide is verified by your academic transcript.
Stage 2 – Assessment of written applications
A panel of assessors considers each applicant’s written responses and records the outcomes.
Applicants with the highest aggregated ratings from Stages 1 and 2 are shortlisted and invited to attend a group interview.
Stage 3 – Group assessment process
You must attend the group interviews, as these are a pre-requisite for progressing to Stage 4.
All applicants will be divided into groups and asked to work as a team to complete tasks that assess competency levels against a set of defined selection criteria. Competencies assessed will include:
- interpersonal skills
- conceptual skills.
You may also be required to individually complete an analytical written task.
If you demonstrate satisfactory competence in this assessment process, you will proceed to Stage 4 of the selection process.
Stage 4 – Interviews
The interview will take approximately 30-45 minutes.
You will be given the questions 10 minutes prior to the interview to allow you to prepare responses.
A panel of 3 or 4 people ask all applicants the same series of questions.
At the end of the interview, applicants have the opportunity to ask questions.
You will need to bring along your original academic records so they can be sighted.
