For many courses, you need to send in written work as part of your application - check your course page. You should send something that you have produced as part of your normal school or college work, which has been marked by a teacher. We would expect each piece of written work to be no more than 2,000 words, and to receive it by 10 November.
After you have submitted your application, the college considering your application will get in touch to tell you how you should submit your written work. Most colleges will ask you to post your written work (unfolded), although some will accept it electronically. We can't return written work, so do make sure to keep a copy.
You will need to complete a cover sheet for each piece of work that you submit, which you will be able to download from this page.
What to send
Extended essays for the International Baccalaureate, Extended Projects, or other longer pieces of work which exceed the 2,000 word limit are not acceptable as submitted written work. However, you may like to submit an extract from an extended essay. Also, if you mention your essay in your personal statement, tutors may like to discuss this with you at interview if your application is shortlisted.
All written work must be in English (except where required for Modern Languages). International students whose work is in a language other than English are asked to submit both the original work and their own translation into English.
