  • Take your time to complete the application form fully
  • Include a personal statement that demonstrates your interest in the course area and motivation to study our course at Brunel

  • Include details of any work experience, especially where it is relevant to the course
  • If you are still completing your undergraduate degree, provide the most up to date interim transcripts with your application
  • Provide details of your referees and we will contact them directly for a reference, suitable referees would normally be an academic tutor from a previous degree or if you have been working, a line manager from a current or recent employer
