  • Capacity – the intellectual ability to analyse and apply unfamiliar information to complex situations.
  • Achievement – the ability to identify and manage resources in order to deliver results.
  • Relationship-building – the ability to work within, and lead, diverse teams     
  • And, for Technical candidates, Technical expertise.

*An Assessed Internship is an alternative final assessment option for penultimate year students.

This programme is now closed for applications.
