When to apply

Many of our programmes have fixed deadlines. Please check the application deadline for the programme you are applying to, as closing dates vary.

Taught programmes

For taught programmes that start in autumn 2021, we accept applications from October 2020 through to summer 2021. Please check the relevant programme entry for further information, including specific deadlines

Research programmes

Research programmes can start throughout the year and we usually accept applications at any time. However, funded programmes are likely to have deadlines, so please check specific programme entries for details. There are also two periods during the year when the application system is unavailable: at the end of January and during the second half of September.

Applying before you have final grades/certificate

If you haven't graduated or received your final grades or certificate, you are still welcome to apply. Please provide transcripts to date, as well as your other supporting documents, which you will be prompted to upload as part of the online application process.


If you have applied before and were unsuccessful, you will need to submit a new application. If you have successfully requested deferred entry, you do not need to complete a new application.
