The Aventus building has closed early every day, and only the Wittenborg admissions team has been busy .. very busy!  - New student applications have been streaming in all summer and the University is set to kick off its introduction to Block 1 next week. However, the admissions team is still busy accepting applications for the October and December starts, and even for the February start in 2014 already!
