Ranking your choices
Rank programmes in order of preference
When applying for Master's degree studies, you need to go to the University Admissions's website and select one Master's programme, but you also have the option of adding three back-up programmes. If you are applying for Bachelor's degree studies, you choose one programme, with the option of adding seven back-up programmes. However, please note that you can only be offered admission to one programme in both cases.
If you apply to more than one programme, it is extremely important to rank the programmes in order of your preference (i.e. rank the programme/university that you would most like to be admitted to as priority 1 and your next choice as priority 2, and so on).
If you meet the admission requirements, there is a place available and you are selected, you will be made an offer for the programme you have given the highest rank to in your list.
If you are offered admission to your first-choice programme, your other programmes choices will be deleted. If you are not offered a place in the first programme on your list, only then can you be offered admission for your second choice, and so on.
Also, note that the way in which you rank programmes is taken into account when applying for scholarships.
