How to apply


You make your application through UCAS, an online application system. The system allows you to choose up to five different universities and apply with one application. 

Applications open on 1 September for entry the following September. The normal closing date is 15 January, but some courses will accept applications until 30 June. You are advised to apply as early as possible as courses have limited places.

You should refer to individual programme pages to see whether your course has any additional application requirements. Applications are usually assessed within two months and can be managed online via UCAS.

Once we've made a decision on your application you'll receive either an unconditional offer, a conditional offer or a rejection. Find out more about what these offers mean in our video:


For the majority of postgraduate programmes you can apply via our website. Simply click the ‘apply now’ button on your chosen programme page (link to course finder). Some programmes have different application procedures, so always check the programme page before making your application.

This is your chance to explain how your academic experience is relevant to the course you want to study. You’ll also have an opportunity to tell us about relevant extracurricular activities you’ve taken part in and how they make you stand out.
