Advice and Information from the MSc Admissions team

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!


  1. Dear Sirs,
    I am a third-year undergraduate student at Bocconi University and I was wondering wether is possible to graduate in September 2017 and begin the MSc at your University during the same month. Otherwise I should finish my exams and upload my thesis by mid June.
    Thank you very much

    • Hi Tommaso
      Thanks for your question! You would need to have graduated before you can start the course (induction commences on 18 September 2017). We will look at these situations on a case-by-case basis. I recommend that you submit an application and contact the admissions officer for the course that you apply for and, if you are made an offer, you can discuss this further with them.
      I hope this helps.
      MSc Admissions Team
