How to apply for postgraduate study
Master's and postgraduate taught
We believe higher education is for everyone. That's why, when you apply to join us as a postgraduate, we'll consider your application on its own merits – whatever your academic or professional background.
In this section, we explain how the application process works.

We strongly recommend you apply as soon as possible before the start of the course, on 4 October 2021. This way, you won’t miss out on the critical opening weeks of your course and university events.
If you apply after 17 October, we cannot guarantee that your application will be processed in time to make you an offer for 2021 entry.
If you are an International student and require a Confirmation of Acceptance for Studies (CAS) to apply for a study visa, we advise that you apply by 24 September to avoid disappointment.
