If you wish to track your application, we would recommend that you send it by recorded delivery and/or include a self- addressed, stamped postcard with your application, which we will send to you when your application is unpacked. We will send an acknowledgment email when we create your application record, but this may take up to four weeks for applications sent by the deadline or more for those received after the deadline.

NOTES FOR GUIDANCE These instructions will help you to complete this application for admissions as effectively as possible and will likely answer any questions you have about The Courtauld’s admissions processes and requirements. If the answers you seek cannot be found here or the Frequently Asked Questions on our website, please feel free to contact the Academic Registry at email@example.com. Required Documents 1. Application form Please complete the enclosed application form. Any changes to course availability will be posted on The Courtauld website. If there are any points in your application which you wish to clarify, please mention these in a covering letter. 2. Academic References You should provide your two nominated referees with the Guidance for Referees (which is available to download from our website with the application form) along with a self-addressed envelope. The reference should be completed following the guidelines and returned to you in the envelope you provide, signed across the seal to ensure confidentiality. In unusual circumstances, references may be sent directly from referees by post or email (firstname.lastname@example.org) on headed paper. Though academic references are ideal, professional references will be accepted provided they are relevant to the programme for which you are applying. References cannot be returned to applicants. 3. Academic Transcripts An official transcript(s) of academic record – a complete record of your classes taken and grades earned – should be obtained from your university. Applicants will normally hold an under- or postgraduate degree with an average of 65% or equivalent (i.e., GPA 3.5) with at least one specialist module in the history of art. If this is not so in your case, any evidence of 2.1 or first class work in your degree will be useful, and your referees should be instructed accordingly. We are unable to return academic records to applicants as they must remain on file, so please ensure that you obtain duplicate records from your university. Photocopies or unofficial records will not be accepted. 4. Written Work Applicants are required at this stage to submit a sample of their academic written work, preferably on an art historical/historical subject. We would prefer a photocopy of your work rather than a final, bound copy. Your work should be between 3,000 and 5,000 words in length. If you do not have a suitable piece of this length, you may submit two shorter pieces, or an extract of a longer piece. The work submitted does not have to be an assessed piece; you may write something new. If you would like your written work to be returned, please supply a self-addressed, stamped envelope. Where an envelope is not supplied, any written work submitted for admissions processes will be kept only for 12 months from the date of application. Candidates are advised to keep a copy of any written work as, although every effort will be made to return it if required, The Courtauld cannot accept any liability for loss or damage. 5. English Proficiency Certificate All applicants are expected to have an effective knowledge of English, both spoken and written. If your first language is not English, you will be required to pass an English proficiency exam. We will accept: IELTS (International English Language Testing System) with an overall bandwidth of 7.0 or above TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language) with a score of at least 100 on the Internet-based test (IBT) and a score of at least 600 on the paper-based test (PBT) with a score of at least 5.0 on the Test of Written English CAE (Cambridge Advanced English) with a minimum grade of B IGCSE with a minimum grade of B Pearson Test for English (PTE) Academic with a score of 75 or above Please note that we will not accept institutional test results or any test not listed above including ESOL qualifications. If you have studied at an institution for three or more years where English is the language of instruction you may be considered without an English proficiency result at the discretion of the course leader. (If such an institution is based in a non-English speaking country, a letter from the institution confirming the language of instruction should be submitted.) If you aren’t able to book a test at a centre in advance of the application deadline, you may submit your application without an English proficiency result and it will be passed on for consideration. You should send your test result when it becomes available to you. Sending Your Application Applications are only considered complete if we receive: Application form Two academic references Academic transcript Written work English proficiency certificate (if applicable) A photocopy of the photo page of your passport Two passport photographs Applications must be sent by post to the address specified above. In unusual circumstances, references may be sent directly from referees via email; however, hard copies in the format requested above are preferred. No applications or other supporting documents sent via email will be accepted. All documents should be submitted in English. All academic records in another language should be accompanied by an official translation. If you are submitting a piece of written work in another language, you may provide an official translation or translate the piece yourself. References should be written in English or, where this is not possible, an official translation should be provided. If you are not able to send all documents together, supporting documents may be sent separately as they become available; however, this may cause delays in processing your application. Any documents sent separately from the application pack should state the applicant’s name clearly.
