How to apply for CPD courses

CPD courses are appropriate for applicants who have already studied an undergraduate degree, or equivalent. Along with a completed application form, you will need to submit copies of the following supporting documents:

  • A work reference. If your referee prefers that you do not see your letter of recommendation, they can mail them to us, confidentially, at the below address.
  • A short personal statement. Your personal statement should explain why you wish to study on the course and provide any additional information which you feel may support your application.
  • An email stating whether you wish to take the course with or without academic credit.

You don't need to submit evidence of your ability to study at Postgraduate level with your application, but we may ask to see copies of your undergraduate degree certificate or academic transcript (or equivalent).


  • Applications for courses starting in September should be submitted by the end of July.
  • Applications for courses starting in January should be submitted by the end of November.
