Section B: About You
Legal surname and legal first names
Enter your legal first, middle and last names in the areas supplied. For example, if you are known as “Katy Smith” but your legal name is “Katherine Rebecca Smith-Jones”, you would need to enter “Smith-Jones” as your legal surname and “Katherine Rebecca” as your legal first names. Please include all parts of your legal name so it makes it easier for us to match your application to your learning records.
Enter the name people commonly call you. For example, if you are known as “Katy Smith” but your legal name is “Katherine Rebecca Smith-Jones”, you would enter “Katy” or “Katy Smith” as your common name.
Previous names / aliases
If you have ever had another legal name (i.e. maiden name) or other aliases you have gone by (whether legally changed or not), please enter this information here.
