  • Your CV
  • Academic transcripts
  • Two confidential referee reports
  • A cover letter that explains why you want to study science communication, and

If you are unable to upload examples of your work into the online application form, you may send them directly to us at the Department of Science Communication either via post or electronically. Items sent by post are not returned. Successful applicants have provided a wide variety of different things as examples of their work, including a film clip or podcast, photographs, a piece of creative writing, song lyrics, and art work.
