You don’t need to have your final degree certificate or English test results at the time of submitting your application – these can be uploaded later. 
An applicant who is completing the final year of his/her first degree or who has yet to provide the required evidence of proficiency in English will be considered for entry to the GLOCAL programme but will not receive an unconditional offer of a place on the programme until we have received his/her final degree and/or English language test results. In such cases you may be made a conditional offer on finishing your degree at the required grade and/or obtaining the required English language test results. This documentation must be submitted to the GLOCAL Consortium via the University of Glasgow before you can enrol on the GLOCAL programme.
