Please use this link:

Please fill in the transfer form with the order number of your assessment booking and your name in the message, plus the words “Case Studies” and your course name in the subject.
Case documents may be uploaded using the “Upload your files” option using the blue plus button for each individual item, however it is usually best to use the “Select a Folder” option which is indicated by the arrow in the picture below. Each Case must be in a separate sub-folder. Please do not send all the cases as 1 document. This is extremely difficult to mark and will be rejected.

Any transfers not filled in or sent correctly may be delayed or rejected and need to be re-sent.
