You need to show us copies of your academic documentation, including transcripts and certificates. These should be copies of the originals on letter-headed paper or with a stamp by the awarding body or institution.

You will also need to provide references (on letter-headed paper) and a copy of your CV if applicable to your application. Documents that aren't in English will need to be translated by an official translator.

Talk to your International Offices if you have any questions about international qualifications.

    - Test                                               - Audition
