1. Research your Course

Before applying you should thoroughly research your prospective course, including its requirements, deadlines and course costs. Information on all our postgraduate courses are in the Course Directory. Check that you meet the entry requirements of the course you want to study.

We usually update the Course Directory on 1 September with information for admission in the following academic year.

2. Know your Deadlines

There are two deadlines that you need to consider: the application deadline and the funding deadline. Find out more >

You submit your application through the Applicant Portal. Once you have selected your course in the Course Directory, click the Apply Online button to be directed to the Applicant Portal.

4. Contact your Referees

You will need two academic references to support your application, and you will need to submit your referees details via the Applicant Portal. Your referees will then receive an automated reference request. You should ensure you already have their consent before you apply.

5. Research the Colleges

All postgraduate students are a member of a College. In your application to study, you will be asked to indicate your College preferences or you can choose to make an open application and have a College allocated for you.

6. Apply for Funding

A number of the University’s major sources of funding can be applied for through the Applicant Portal. Please ensure you leave plenty of time to complete these sections.

7. Application Fee

Once you have finished writing your application, uploaded all required supporting documents and received references, your application is ready to be submitted. If you are applying for a masters level course you will be asked to pay the application fee before you can submit your application. Check the application fee page for more information.

8. Interview

Most departments/faculties will want to interview you if your application is accepted to the next stage in the admissions process. Some scholarships and studentships will also invite shortlisted candidates for interviews. Most interviews will be conducted via video conferencing or telephone.
