Upgrading your offer

As final degree results come out, many of you will now be in a position to upgrade your offer to unconditional. If you are a conditional offer holder, please send us the documents required to upgrade your offer as you receive them. You can refer to your offer letter to check what your offer conditions are.

Verification of key documents

We require an original or certified version (i.e. stamped by your university) of your final degree transcript to be sent to us as a hard copy (post/courier/personal delivery) – we cannot accept scans, photocopies or emails.

For Chinese degrees we also require a certified copy of the graduation certificate and an online degree verification report ( with the verification code.

Two references either sent from the work email address of the referee or a hard copy sent in a sealed envelope.

Access with GMAC to verify your GMAT result – it helps us to track the result if you also send us a copy of your report which includes the appointment number.

Copy of your IELTS report which we will verify online using the TRF number.

There may be some other documents that need verification such as professional qualifications or proof of employment – you will have been informed if these are necessary. If you have any queries please do not hesitate to contact your Admissions Officer for advice.

Narrowly missed conditions

If you are in the position that you have narrowly missed the conditions of your offer then please contact us to discuss your position before searching for an alternative. You will need to email your Admissions Officer the evidence of your results and they will seek advice as to whether any alternative can be offered.


We look forward to receiving your documents – good luck with your final results!

Course Availability

As summer approaches, many of you will have recently finished your finals and might be considering your options for the year ahead. If you are thinking of taking a Masters at Cass Business School but have not yet applied, we strongly recommend that you submit your application as soon as possible. We welcome applications on a rolling basis, and close our courses when they are full. Three of our courses have now closed for applications (MSc Finance, MSc Banking and International Finance, and MSc Management), and the majority of our remaining courses are likely to close within the next couple of months.

So, if you’re interested, please submit your online application form, where you can also upload your documents including your degree transcript (the final transcript, if possible, or an interim one if you are still awaiting your final results), personal statement, CV, evidence of English proficiency (if necessary) and any other documents you feel will enhance your application. You may wish to read our guidance on how to fill out the application form.

Students requiring a Tier 4 visa to study in the UK should especially consider submitting their application soon, in order to ensure that there is sufficient time to prepare your visa application over the summer.

If you have any queries about the courses or application process, please do not hesitate to contact us. We look forward to receiving your application!
