Whether you apply online or by post you must include the following documents:
- A completed application form
- Two academic references (please read the note on references)
- Copies of bachelors degree transcripts and any other degree studied.
- Copy of IELTS/TOEFL results (if applicable)
- Letter of sponsorship (if applicable)
- It may help your application if you include a personal statement and CV
You can apply online by clicking the buttons above. This way you can track your application at each stage of the process. You can upload scanned documents while applying online; however, original or certified copies will need to be supplied separately by post at a later stage.
Full, clear and accurate contact details of two references should be included in your application. We may request references from academic referees as a crucial element of the selection process. Nominated references should not be related to you and should be qualified to comment on your capacity to cope with the academic demands of the programme. In exceptional circumstances, applicants applying with directly relevant work experience may nominate someone with knowledge of their employment activity to act as a second referee.
Please ask them to comment on:
- How long and in what capacity they have known you
- What they consider to be your strengths
- Detailed information on academic results that you have obtained and a prediction of your likely degree result if you have not yet graduated
- Their assessment of your suitability for the particular postgraduate programme for which you are applying
- If English is not your first language they must comment on your English speaking, writing and comprehension abilities
