Is there a deadline to apply for a postgraduate degree?



Most of our postgraduate programmes do not have official deadlines unless otherwise specified on our postgraduate course pages within the applying section. It is always best to apply as soon as possible, however as a general guide we would advise the following:

International Students

For practical reasons relating to the issuing of visas, we ask students who will require visas to study in the UK to apply no later than 31 July of the year in which you intend to start your studies. If we have not received your application by this date, it may be too late for us to make a decision on your application in time for you to apply for your visa and arrive before the start of term. If we receive late applications, we may still consider them, but may make an offer only for the following academic year.

Home/EU Students and nationals of countries that do not require visas

Students who do not require a visa in order to study in the UK may continue to make applications until 31 August of the year in which you intend to start your studies. Applications received after this date may still be considered, but we may not have any places left, so we may make you an offer only for the following academic year.
