detail of the apply now section on degree pages

To apply for a postgraduate programme, look up your chosen programme in the degree finder.

Degree finder

Once you've found your programme, look for the “Apply” button in the “Applying” section.

Choose the option with your preferred award, study mode and start date, then choose "Apply" to begin your application.

The application form contains guidance on how to complete each section.

The first step in the online application asks for your basic details. This includes your email address.

You do not need to complete the application in full; you can save a partially completed application. If you do this, an email will be sent to you that provides a link to allow you to return to the application to complete it.

Applicant Hub

Once you have submitted your completed application, you will receive a username and a password for our Applicant Hub.

The Applicant Hub is a secure site that allows you to edit some of your personal details, submit further documents that may be requested by our admissions teams, and track the progress of your application.

Exceptions: when to apply by other means

There are some circumstances where you should not apply using the University's own online application system:

  • If the applications for your chosen programme are handled by an external organisation, institution or professional body you will need to apply using their own online system.
  • If you are unable to use our online application system, you may apply by post.

See our non-standard applications information for full details and guidance on how to apply.
