What we look for in applications

We will look at your application based principally on academic ability. However we will also evaluate it using the following admissions criteria:

  • Good academic profile and achievement, demonstrated by actual or predicted grades
  • Academic references
  • Any extenuating circumstances you want taken into consideration

What we look for in personal statements

Your personal statement is your opportunity to show us your skills and qualities and is a vital part of your application. Our Mind Map download has lots of good suggestions for what you should include in your personal statement.
