You are encouraged to familiarise yourself with the research expertise within the participating faculties when preparing your application. However, you will not be required to specify a potential supervisor in your application and the faculty's admissions committee will in any case decide supervision arrangements, taking due account of workload and commitments of its academics. The set of documents you should send with your application to this course comprises the following:.
Your transcripts should give detailed information of the individual grades received in your university-level qualifications to date. You should only upload official documents issued by your institution and any transcript not in English should be accompanied by a certified translation. More information about the transcript requirement is available in the Application Guide. Most applicants choose to submit a document of one to two pages highlighting their academic achievements and any relevant professional experience.
Your statement should convince the admissions committee that you have the right intellectual qualities, academic knowledge and skills to undertake the course. It should focus on how you see the course as building upon your previous study, and what you hope to do with the qualifications you gain from the University, rather than on personal achievements and aspirations. You should discuss what kinds of problems and issues you hope to engage with; what the current state of your knowledge and understanding of these is, and how you hope to advance that.

You should indicate what optional papers you are interested in taking. You should also sketch out a preliminary research proposal and title for your intended dissertation. This should supply a research question identifying the central issue or problem with which you intend to grapple, some account of the current state of scholarship in this area and an indication of the kinds of sources you hope to use. You should combine your research proposal with your statement of purpose to upload it as a single document. Your statement must be written in English. Any footnotes must be included in the word count.
A bibliography may also be provided and is not included in the word count. It is anticipated that your ideas will change and develop once you have begun the programme and have been exposed to new approaches, sources and methods. However, students applying to this course are expected to have a clear sense of the kind of research they wish to undertake. Academic essays or other writing samples from your most recent qualification are required. Extracts from a longer dissertation are welcome as long as they are prefaced by a brief paragraph to establish their context.
Writing samples from applicants for masters' courses need not necessarily relate closely to the proposed area of study.
The written work must be submitted in English if this work has been translated, you must indicate if the translations are your own, or what assistance you had in producing the English text. Any footnotes should be included in the word count. This will be assessed for understanding of problems in the area; ability to construct and defend an argument; powers of analysis; and powers of expression.
To submit one longer piece of work in your application, upload your work as written work in your application and for the second piece of written work, upload the following text as a PDF or Word document:. Whilst you must register three referees, the department may start the assessment of your application if two of the three references are submitted by the course deadline and your application is otherwise complete.
Please note that you may still be required to ensure your third referee supplies a reference for consideration. References should generally be academic, though if you are returning to study after extended periods of non-academic employment then you are welcome to nominate professional referees where it would be impractical to call on your previous university tutors.
Your references will support intellectual ability, academic achievement, motivation, ability to work in both a group environment and sustained individual and self-motivated investigation. Step 4: Our Application Guide will help you complete the form. It contains links to FAQs and further help.
