Applications for Admission

Scope and Content

Up to 1891, the students applied by letter and were asked to provide answers to set questions. They were also asked to provide testimonials. From 1891 the candidate was issued with an application form, and the referees were sent a standardised questionnaire.

Readmission requests may be included with reports or letters.

Material is available for 43 of the 150 years.


The applications have been sorted into bundles based on the year of application.

Numbers are allocated to items on the basis of year, leaving gaps in the numerical order where records are missing.
