Qualifications we need to see

Once you decide to accept an offer to study with us, there may be some documents we need to see. If your offer has conditions relating to a qualification then you must provide originals or copies of these qualifications as soon as you have achieved them.

Unconditional offers might still be subject to us seeing proof of certain qualifications.

To find out if you need to provide proof of some or all of your qualifications, please see the certificates required for Undergraduate programmes document if you are joining an undergraduate programme.

If you are joining a postgraduate course, please see the certificates required for Postgraduate programmes document instead.

We recommend that you send original documents by recorded delivery and include an addressed envelope, pre-paid for recorded delivery for their return, otherwise they will be returned to you by ordinary post.

Please send along your certificates (with the right amount of postage) to:

Admissions Office

If you have already provided your qualifications don’t worry, you do not need to send them to us again.
