If you use the My Applications website then you will be advised which documentation you need to upload or send to us. These will usually include:
- Degree certificates and transcripts of previous higher education (college/university) degrees or other courses that you have completed/for which you are currently studying. For transcripts in languages other than English, a certified English translation will be required.
- Two references
- A personal statement
If English is not your first language, we require copies of English language test results.
