Please submit the completed document along with your ISCP decision letter, two passport photos and the appropriate fee.
Visa application is a separate process and beyond the remit of the ISCP. Please be advised that ISCP staff cannot advocate for an applicant. The ISCP will furnish a confirmation letter to applicants only when fully paid up to sit the physiotherapy aptitude test. The onus is on the applicant to allow enough time to complete all necessary processes. The refund policy (article 4.2 Physiotherapy Aptitude Test-Information for Applicants) will be strictly enforced.
The March 2015 dates have not as yet been set for the next round of Aptitude Tests. Dates will be finalised in January 2015.
