University of Birmingham Application Guidance Notes 2017/18
Before continuing with your application please read the following guidance carefully.
Your application is specifically designed for the programme you have applied for via course finder. It is sensitive to the answers you provide as you proceed through the application.
You do not have to complete your application in one session. You will be sent an email containing a secure link to enable you to complete your application at a future date should you so choose.
You will be able to save your application at any point in the process and return to it when you are ready to continue.
Please note that your application will not be processed until all the relevant sections have been completed and your application has been submitted.
Upon submitting your application you will be given the opportunity to upload scanned documents in support of your application.
You may want to consider the supporting documentation that you will need to upload at the end of the application process before reaching that point. See Upload Documents Screen
Please note that a decision on your application may be delayed if the relevant supporting documents are not received.
The following information will usually be needed before a decision can be made on your application:
- 2 academic references;
- Degree transcripts (interim* transcripts);
- English language test certificate (if appropriate);
- Research proposal (if appropriate).
*A transcript of your degree progress and achievement to date.
You may also be required to submit further documents. This will depend on whether you indicate on your application that you will be uploading a document in support of your application. If you indicate that you will be uploading a document during the application process, the document will become a mandatory part of your application.
A copy of your completed application will be available to you for your future reference.
It is your responsibility to ensure that the information you provide is accurate and complete, and does not contain false or misleading information.
