Admission Documents for Masters/MBA in UK
If you are planning to study in UK then you need to understand the required Admission Documents for Masters/MBA in UK.
A well crafted resume goes a long way. It should clearly talk about your employment, education, and achievements. Generally, we recommend that your resume / CV should be should only be of one page. Here is where you can get a simple explanation on what can appear on a SMART RESUME. Include your work experience, educational qualifications, project details (if any), internship information, list of extra-curricular activities, your interests and any other information that you believe will help you stand out of the lot.
Academic Mark Sheets:
10th standard onward to final year. If you do not have your final semester or final year mark sheet assuming you are studying in the last of your Bachelors, send the remaining ones to the University. You can update the final semester or final mark sheet once you have it from your College.
Bachelors Transcript is a consolidated score sheet that you get from your College. It is not mandatory to submit a transcript to UK Universities. Some Universities however may ask for it. It alright however not to worry too much about it. Just send the other documents to the University.
UK Universities require two recommendation letters. These have to be on the letter head of your school / college / employer, should be stamped and signed. These need NOT be sealed in an envelope like in the case of US Universities. Some UK Universities the online method of submitting recommendations. You will need to register the referees online and you will have to add the title, full name, designation, company name and official email ID (no gmail, yahoo, outlook) of your referees to the online application.
They will then get an email from the university with a link they need to click on to recommend you. Half of this is usually a rating scale and the other half is either a text box or specific questions about you need to be answered. Please pick referees who will be comfortable doing this all online and who have an official email ID. Tip: In case of your work reference letter, it is more important for your immediate manager who you regularly report to, to act as your referee (as opposed to the Director of the company who has barely had any interaction with you)
Personal Statement / Statement of Purpose:
This is a 1.5 to 2 page essay. It should address 5 main questions: What motivates you to do this course? What prepares you to do this course (academics, work)? Why do you want to do your MBA or a particular Masters at the UK University? What are your short-term, long-term goals or career plans in general? You can submit this to us a MS Word file and we will check and edit this for you.
Work Experience or Internship Letters:
Especially for MBA applicants, this is very important. You must take a work experience letter from all your employers. Even for students who are applying for Masters, UK Universities will be keen on knowing about your experience which you have undertaken AFTER your graduation.
Test Score Reports:
Certificated – extracurricular activities, social work, volunteer work, community service, etc. should be included. Don’t include participation certificates (unless it’s a workshop, seminar or the like). Keep to the certificates you earned 9th standard onward, unless it’s at the inter-state level.
First and last page, plus any correction page.
Passport sized photograph (preferably with a white back ground) – only in some online applications.
Completed application form of each UK University must be filled and sent to the University. These forms are available on their website or you can take these from us. If its an online application, you may receive a confirmation email or you could take a screenshot of the application and send it with the other documents.
Note: Financial documents are NOT required to be submitted to UK Universities at the time of admissions.
Please keep in mind that this is a general checklist, more or fewer documents may be required based on the universities requirements. In case of a courier, you will need to attest these (by notary, gazetted officer, or by school or college)

Wall of Fame
We are proud that we could help our students get into some of the top universities in UK
Thanks to ILW to give me the ultimate support and guidance to shortlist the Universities and completing my applications on time to get through the best ones.
I happened to chance upon ILW while looking at the possibility of studying abroad as a backup to my plan of pursuing my further studies in India. I was pleasantly surprised and not the least bit disappointed.
With their vast and in depth knowledge of various factors pertaining to certain universities and their respective countries, ILW, specifically Rupali Ma’am and Vishal Sir aided me every step of the way starting from college selection to the subsequent applications and have provided effective guidance. They also almost act as a confidant in the way that they help one clear the silliest of doubts. They are very helpful and I would highly recommend them to anyone looking to pursue their education abroad.
They helped me with everything and have taken care of smallest of details to make sure everything is perfect while applying to the universities. I got into one of the best universities in London and it wouldn’t have been possible without Vishal sir and his team. Rupali ma’am has been in contact with me everyday and she helped me with any detail I need about a certain course, university or any doubt regarding my applications. I would highly recommend ILW to anyone who needs guidance regarding their career and college applications.
ILW Consultants have been extremely helpful to me as well as my sister. It is because of them that I am going to study abroad in a very reputed University. To top it all off, the people working there are polite, kind and very soft spoken. I would highly recommend ILW to anybody who is thinking to study abroad. 🙂
I am from Bangalore and got ILW’s reference through my relatives in Mumbai. The team really helped me with the planning, essay editing, and guiding me right through the app process. I wanted to apply to top UK Universities only. I secured nearly all offers at top UK business schools. I did not join as some of my plans changed and I secured a great job back home. However in the future I do plan to do my Masters and I am sure that I will be using the services of ILW Education Consultants again….. Great team!
