How to Apply

(For academic year 2024/25 only)

What do I need to include in my application?

Please check your qualifications match the entry requirements for the course you are applying for.

When reviewing applications particular attention will be paid to academic performance.  Given the competition for places, preference will be given to applicants who have or who are projected to exceed our minimum requirements.

As part of your online application you will be able to upload scanned documents.  

Please do not merge separate qualifications together.

Make sure that you include all the documents requested below, incomplete applications may not be continued if we feel that it is less likely that we might make an offer, or if it is felt that insufficient effort was made in submitting the application.

Please do not upload academic documents to the funding section as we cannot access these.

If we do request any further information, please make sure you read any requests carefully and provide the correct information as we will not chase you further.

Your application must include the following:

  • A copy of your degree certificate and complete transcript. If you are still studying, please provide your latest transcript plus a list of modules yet to be studied.
  • Evidence of your final or current overall % or GPA (see the country specific information below for further guidance if you are studying in China, India or Canada).
  • A copy of your grading scale/scheme if this is not on your degree transcript (these are sometimes on the reverse of the transcript).  

If you have them, please include the following:

  • Your approved English Language test (if applicable).
  • CAS, BRP and Visa – for International students that have previously studied in the UK on a Student visa. 

We are usually able to issue a conditional offer without these documents, but if they are required we will not issue an unconditional offer until we have received them.

  • CV/resume

If you have one, please include an up-to-date CV showing your relevant work experience and education.  Decisions are normally made considering your academic background only, however a CV can be useful in clarifying your education and possibly considering work experience where appropriate.

Documents which are not required:

  • References.
  • A personal statement.

We will not check these items. You should include all relevant experience in your CV.
