Degree Certificates & Transcripts
(Section D)
Please include your degree certificates in your application.
Documents must be in English. If it is necessary for documents
to be translated, please send a copy of the original document
and a certified translation.
If your application is based on degree level studies and/or
qualifications from outside the United Kingdom you must
also obtain a transcript, and submit it with your application
form. A transcript is a detailed marksheet which confirms the
award of your qualification and also lists all the subjects studied
and grades obtained. If you have not completed your degree
programme at the time of applying, you should send a transcript
of your marks so far.
Please DO NOT send original certificates or diplomas but
certified (stamped) copies of transcripts or degree certificates.
Photocopies of certified documents are also acceptable.
If your academic study was several years ago and degree
certificates or transcripts of degree certificates cannot be
obtained, your application can still be considered. However,
please inform the Diploma Manager why your degree/
certificate is not submitted with the application.
References (Section E)
You should give the names and addresses of your referees on
your application form for record purposes.
All applicants are required to submit TWO references. The
referees must be people who are familiar with your academic
and/or professional work. We would expect one reference from
your current, or most recent, place of study and one from your
current, or most recent, workplace.
If your most recent academic study was several years ago,
and you feel other experience is more relevant, work-related
references only may be sent and one reference instead of two
is acceptable.
Referees should provide an opinion on the applicant’s suitability
for the programme of study. References must be in English. If it
is necessary for references to be translated, please send a copy
of the original and also a translation.
Your referee should return the reference to you, sealed in
an envelope and signed across the seal. Please submit the
references together with the application as a complete
application greatly speeds up the processing of applications. If,
however, you are unable to comply with this request, please ask
your referee to enclose the reference in an envelope marked
Confidential’ and send it separately to Denise Acford,
Postgraduate Diploma in Asian Art, SOAS, University of London,
Thornhaugh Street, Russell Square, London WC1H 0XG, UK. In
this case, the referee should inform you when the reference has
been sent directly to the School.
References submitted by email are also acceptable. Please
email them to: da33@soas.ac.uk
Under the Data Protection Act, applicants have the right to see
references supplied as part of their application.
English Language (Section F)
Applicants whose first language is not English will be asked to
provide evidence of their proficiency in English language if they
are offered a place at SOAS. It will assist the processing of your
application, if you can enclose this evidence in your application
form. However, consideration of applications will not be held
back if evidence is not available at this initial stage.
If you are able to supply evidence, it should be in the form of an
IELTS score. The test should be taken within the year
preceding the proposed date of your admission. For entry in the
academic year 2015/16, this means providing results for a
test
dated from 1st September 20014 onwards.
You should send an original copy or certified photocopy of your
IELTS results.
For up-to-date information on the specific IELTS scores
required to be admitted to the Diploma in Asian Art,
please
see www.soas.ac.uk/art
