Submitting your application

To apply, the best (and cheaper) way is to create an account online and complete the application form. You can request your references (recommendations) using the online application and upload your transcript, personal statement, research proposal and CV.  Make sure that your chosen programmes still have places available |before you submit your application. Alternatively, send your completed paper form and supporting documents to us in the post.

Once you have submitted your application and it is received by us, you will receive an acknowledgement email with your individual application number within 5-10 working days . You can use the number to access your application status online|, and should quote it in any correspondence with us.

Completing your application - supporting documents

To complete your application we must receive:

  • Two academic references
  • Transcripts of your degree level qualifications
  • GRE/GMAT score if required by the programme applied for
  • Administration fee

Within 5-10 working days of each document arriving in our office, you will receive an acknowledgement email and you will see your status change online. It will save you time if you are able to send/submit all of your documents together. If you are applying on a paper form, send your documents and form in one package. This is summary information; for more detail, click here|.

Your application is held in the admissions office whilst we wait for your outstanding documents to be arrive.

Once your application is complete you will receive a final email informing you that your file has been sent to the department. This is the beginning of the selection process. On average, final decisions will be made 6-8 weeks from the time your application is sent to the department.

Rarely, departments may request further information once they have reviewed your application. We will contact you by email if further information is needed, your file will be considered incomplete until we receive it.
