Use common sense when reading this information. We are being as clear as we can about our requirements and there are no trick questions or hidden traps.
We ask you to provide the documents as requested (or as close to them as you can manage) so that we can make a good decision on your application.
Don’t overload your application with extra documents – the selectors won’t have time to read them and we really don’t need them.

There is no fixed word limit, but we expect this to be no longer than 1,000 – 1,500 words. Some programmes have specific requirements which are different to this; please check the relevant programme page for information.
We offer guidance to help you. Read it and act sensibly on it.
Please do not send supporting documents directly to departments as this will delay your application.
Please remember that it is your responsibility to ensure that your application is complete, including all references, the transcript and the fee, and where applicable GRE/GMAT scores and your research proposal. Please be aware that all documents are non-returnable.
