Before you apply

Before you apply, you should make sure you meet the entrance requirements of your chosen degree, and contact us to discuss your proposed programme of study.

Entry requirements

To study at postgraduate level, you will need to meet our academic and English language entry requirements.

When to apply

You may make your application at any time, however, there are advantages to applying early due to high demand for programmes.

You should apply at least one month prior to entry so that we have enough time to process your application.

If you will require a visa then we strongly recommend you apply earlier than this, to allow time for the visa application process.Further information on visas and immigration can be found on the International Office website.

Similarly, if you are applying for financial support you will need to be aware of the relevant funding deadlines. You may need to have an offer in place from the University before you can be considered for some sources of funding.

It is not necessary to wait for examination results or the outcome of scholarship applications before you apply.

Some programmes have specific application deadlines, which are published alongside the programme information in the degree finder.

We may consider late appliations if we have places available, but you should contact the relevant Admissions Office for advice first. Contact details can also be found in the degree finder.

Supporting documents

When you apply, you will need to upload:

  • a transcript with all of your results achieved to date
  • copies of your degree/diploma certificate, if you have already completed your qualification
  • references, if these are required for the application to your chosen programme
  • certified translations, if your original documents are not in English

To make sure your application is processed in the fastest possible time, you should upload your supporting documents along with your application. We can't make a decision on your application until we have received all your relevant documents.

Contacting us

Before you apply, we recommend you contact the School you wish to study in to discuss your proposed programme and any special conditions that may apply to your studies.

This is particularly important if you are interested in research because the School needs to make sure it has the appropriate facilities and expert supervision available.
