How to apply for postgraduate study

Applications for postgraduate programmes are made using our online application form.

General entry requirements

You must satisfy the University’s general entry requirements as well as any specific requirements for your chosen programme.

Specific programme entry requirements are set out in the Key Facts section for each programme. For details of our programmes, see our Taught courses and Research programmes.

As well as academic qualifications and practical experience, we look for evidence of your interest in the programme and an understanding of the rigorous demands of postgraduate study.

If you are an international student you will need to ensure that your academic and English language qualifications meet our entry requirements. Please check the International students section for further details.

Application deadline

There is no University deadline for applications for taught or research programmes, however some Faculties may have their own application deadlines. Details are available in the Key Facts for each course or research programme. You should apply as early as possible if you need to secure a UK visa or if you are applying for funding or sponsorship.

Deadlines for research funding are usually at least six months in advance of the start date.
