Before accepting your application we need to be as certain as we can (although we cannot guarantee this) that you will meet the eligibility requirements set by the ARB. We will require copies of transcripts on application. The aim is to save you spending abortive fees and going through the short course only to be rejected by the ARB.

Due to the nature of this course, we are unable to accept non-UK based applicants.
