Please ensure you have attached the correct amount of postage for the weight and size of your envelope as failure to do so will result in your application not being received (remember an envelope larger than A5 is classed as a Large Letter by Royal Mail).

Please inform your referees of your application, as we will contact these shortly after receipt of your application and will not be able to send your portfolio to an assessor until references have been received and all other documentation has been confirmed as enclosed (certified ID, CV, supporting statement, mapping forms A&B, accompanying evidence & application fee).

ID and Degree Certificates/Transcripts can be certified as true copies of the original documents by any individual of professional standing, providing they are not related to you, do not live at the same address as yourself and is not a close personal friend.
