How to apply
Applications may be submitted online for admission to the vast majority of postgraduate programmes (except for those listed in the table below, for which there are separate application arrangements).
When to apply
In general, there are no closing dates for taught degrees or research programmes (see exceptions below). However, we encourage you to apply as early as possible. This is important because a number of our programmes receive more applications than there are places available and arrangements may have to be made for tests, interviews and the collection of references, where required. In addition, international students need to allow time to obtain a visa.
If you are seeking financial support, you should refer to the relevant School websites for information on deadline dates for postgraduate funding applications, as these will also determine when your application for a place should be submitted.
The following link will take you to the online application portal where you may quickly and easily submit an application and receive an immediate acknowledgement:
