    Unofficial copies will not be accepted.

    Required for all applications based on academic experience and for all academic experience listed on the application form.

    If your previous course or units were undertaken at the same university you are now applying to, then you don't need to provide academic transcripts in the application. For studies done elsewhere, always include academic transcripts and certificates if you have undertaken studies/qualifications at institutions other than OUA. Please retain the actual certified copy in case the university requests it at a later date.

  2. Certified copies of legal documentation, including:
    • Marriage certificate.
    • Deed poll name change certificate.

    These documents are required to show your legal name or if you have changed your name.

    Please ensure your legal name is on your application form and matches all your supporting documentation.

    • All academic documentation, e.g. transcripts and certificates.
    • All legal documentation, e.g, marriage, deed poll and birth certificates.

    If any academic or legal document is not in English, you must provide certified copies of the non-English documents, including certified copies of the official English translations of these documents. This is for comparison purposes.

  4. Certified copies of English language test results, e.g. IELTS or TOEFL.

    Required if your previous studies were not completed in English.

  5. Your curriculum vitae. Required for:
    • Entry into all postgraduate courses.

    If you are providing documentation to support work experience over a period of time and you have worked for multiple employers during that period, please provide a letter of reference for each separate employer.

A certified copy is a copy bearing the recognised mark of a Justice of the Peace, Commission of Oaths or declarations, Public Notary or a Solicitor.
