First of all it’s important to say, don’t worry! TEG is here to help support your application process from start to finish. However, it’s good to know what to expect during the application process. This is why we have put together this outline of the documents you will need to support your application.
Depending on the university that you apply to you will most likely need the following documents to support your application:
Before making your application you should make sure that you have prepared the above documents.
You should also prepare these documents in a digital or electronic format with a file size no larger than 2MB.
If you are an international student, your university will apply to the UK government’s UK Visas & Immigration (UKVI) for your CAS (Confirmation of Acceptance for Studies) number. This is so that they can confirm that they have made you an unconditional offer of a study place, and that you have accepted this. UKVI will then issue a CAS number for you. In order to apply for your CAS, you will be usually required to attend a credibility interview as part of the admission’s procedure.
You will also need to submit a personal statement as part of your undergraduate or postgraduate application. This is a document that you will write in order to demonstrate your ability and motivation to study the course you are applying for. Your personal statement include:
- Why this university? Why a specific campus? Which other institutions did you consider?
- Why did you choose to apply for this course? Did you consider any other courses?
- How does the course content align with your career plans?
- Is this course offered in your home country? If so, why have you decided to study abroad? Why have you chosen the UK, and what are the benefits of studying here rather than your home country?
- If you have had a long break in studies, why are you returning now?
- What are your plans after you have finished your studies?
