If you already have copies of reference letters, you can upload them directly into your application. Reference letters must be no more than 1 year old at the programme start date and must be on headed paper, dated and signed.
  2. Confirmation of your degree plus a transcript of your marks or an interim transcript in case you still have to complete your degree.

Please note that a research proposal is not required for your application for the programme - please fill in 'Research projects will be chosen once the programme is underway' and ignore any automatically generated emails requesting this information. The online application process also asks for details on your research topic. Please provide details about your current research interests. This will not limit your choice of research projects once you are on the programme.
