Physics & Astronomy

Due to high demand we operate selection deadlines for our postgraduate taught programmes in Physics.

The programmes listed below, from the School of Physics & Astronomy, have selection deadlines.

You can apply up until the final selection deadline listed for the programme, although we do recommend applying as early as you can. Please note programmes may close early due to high demand.

A small number of offers will be made to outstanding candidates on an ongoing basis, but  the majority of applications will be held until each of the published selection round deadlines below and then considered together.  Following each selection round deadline:

  • Applicants who are being made an offer will be notified.
  • Applicants who have been unsuccessful will be notified.
  • Applicants still being considered will have their application carried forward to the next round.

We expect to make the majority of decisions within six weeks of each selection deadline.
