Requirements / ApplicationWhen to apply
There are no formal deadlines for postgraduate applications. However, our postgraduate courses begin in late September so we advise you to send your application by 31 May the same year as some courses are extremely popular. Some of our taught degrees will also be fully subscribed by the summer months and we'll be unable to consider applications by this time.
We strongly recommend that applications are sent well in advance of your intended enrolment date so you have enough time to make the various arrangements between the receipt of the application form and the commencement of study.
If you wish to be considered for Student awards or College Studentships and Scholarships, please check the deadline for the competition with each individual body as these can vary.
