Our application process is designed to identify if you are the type of student who will realise your potential and be a valuable part of our learning community.

We are really proud about our application process, as staff and current students work together to find out who will be admitted to the program. Our application process consists of the following four steps:

Step 1: Written Application + Creative Assignment


We want to get to know you and why you are interested in the Enterprising Leadership

Program. We also want to gauge your level of creativity, which is why you also have to solve a creative assignment.


Step 2: Application Workshop
