How to apply – postgraduate study

If you are interested in postgraduate study, you can apply directly through our website. There’s no fee, and you can apply at any time during the year: we’re able to accept direct applications right up until shortly before a course starts.*

We offer postgraduate starts throughout the year, with our two main intakes occurring in January and September. Please see individual course pages for the start dates offered on your preferred course and any associated application deadlines.

Key deadlines are:

  • September 2021 start:: apply by 10 September 2021 for UK/EU students, or 31 August 2021 if you are an international student needing a Student visa.
  • January 2022 start: apply by 17 December 2021 for UK/EU students or 10 December 2021 for international students.

We recommend you submit your application as early as possible – even if you haven’t yet been awarded your first degree or other entry qualification.

Once you’ve chosen your course, check the entry requirements on the course page to ensure you’re eligible.
