Postgraduate applications

If you are interested in our postgraduate programmes (Pre-Masters Programme, Masters or Doctoral Degree ‘PhD’), you can apply directly to the University.

There is no formal deadline to submit postgraduate applications; however some Faculties may have their own application deadlines. You can submit your application online.

PhD students are usually expected to submit a research proposal together with their application. You should look at the research undertaken by the relevant Academic Unit and contact the Admissions Tutor if you have any questions.

We now offer University of Southampton final-year students and alumni the chance to experience postgraduate study at a 10 per cent discounted price. Visit our website for more details.
