Applications for September 2024 are now open. We look forward to seeing your application soon.

Applications must be submitted through the University’s online application service, EUCLID. Offers cannot be made without a fully completed online application.

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.

When uploading documents, keep the file size as small as possible to improve processing time. Name all documentation appropriately. For example: Transcript, Reference 1, and so on.

Supporting documents

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

  • A degree certificate
  • A transcript of your degree certificate which provides details of degree examinations passed and the marks and grades awarded
  • A personal statement of why you have chosen this programme
  • A signed and dated letter of reference on headed paper
  • An English language certificate from within the last two years, if applicable

You can also upload two additional documents to support your application. For instance, if you have been awarded a relevant professional qualification or if you have more than one degree, you can upload these certificates.

What if my documents are not in English?

If your original documents are not in English, you must provide officially certified translations.

References

You need to provide a letter of reference to support your application. This should be a professional reference from someone who knows you in a professional capacity.

Application closing dates

Applications close in August (the specific date changes each year and you can find this on the right-hand column in the application page), with a new cohort starting every September. The application portal then closes for several weeks to allow the teams time to focus on helping new students settle in.
