How to Apply

To apply for our postgraduate programmes, you should have a good honours degree in an appropriate subject, or equivalent qualification with relevant work experience. 

All taught programmes commence at the start of the academic year in September/October. Research students can begin at any time of the year, but you are encouraged to apply before 31 July in the year of entry.  If you wish to be considered for a research council award you should normally apply by March/April.

The majority of applications are administered by the Postgraduate Admissions Service for your chosen study area but generally, you should apply direct to the University using our online application system.

You can find out more about the application process for research degrees from the University's website. The University's standard Postgraduate Application Forms are also available online.
