You can apply online for both taught and research programmes. If applying for a research programme, please discuss possible projects with academic staff first.

Applications for all programmes should be made through the University's online applications system.

How to apply for our programmes



Before applying for a research degree, you should discuss possible projects with relevant members of our academic staff.


You may apply at any time, but there are advantages to applying early due to high demand for programmes or if scholarship deadlines apply.

You should not wait for examination results or the outcome of scholarship applications before you apply.
