Eligible students who have their post-graduate certificate must also complete a 7-week (42 hour) research methodologies course at Sheridan and successfully complete the application process before they can study at IADT.  

Applications for the first cohort will be accepted in August 2019 for a January 2020 start, and in May 2020 for a September 2020 start.
