How to apply

You will need to complete an online application which includes one reference, transcripts and other supporting documents.

Applications must be submitted through the University’s online application service, EUCLID.

The application does not have to be completed in one session - you can save your progress and return to complete the application at another time.

Supporting documents

Your application will require supporting information, with translations where applicable, including:

  • a curriculum vitae (CV) detailing your relevant professional experience, including email addresses of your previous employers
  • a transcript of your degree certificate, or an interim transcript if you are yet to graduate, which provides details of degree examinations passed and the marks and grades awarded
  • transcripts of professional qualifications, if applicable
  • one academic reference on headed paper including both the referee’s address and email address (the referee can also choose to send this separately to the University)
  • an English language certificate from within the last two years, if applicable

Personal statement

We also advise you to include a personal statement. You should aim to include the following information:

  • What is your motivation for undertaking this programme and what information can you provide in support of this?
  • What skills and experience do you have relevant to this programme, what contribution can you make?
  • How will this programme benefit your future career plans?

Apply online

The University’s online application system is accessed through the degree finder.

We accept applications throughout the year but if you are applying for funding we advise that you apply as early as possible, as most scholarship deadlines are early in the year and often no later than May or June.
