Apply

Application is through the University's online form.  APPLY ONLINE NOW »

We cannot comment on individual eligibility before you apply and we can only process your application once it is fully complete, with all requested information received. We operate a rolling admissions process so there is no deadline. There is a non-refundable application fee of £35.

References
You must supply two academic references if you graduated within the last two years. These can be from anybody who has taught you. If you graduated over two years ago we will accept one professional and one academic reference, or two professional references.

Once you have paid your application fee, we will email your referees inviting them to submit a reference for you online. It is your responsibility to ensure references have been submitted.

Transcripts
You must supply an official transcript of your degree with your application, which includes modules from all years of your degree including those being studied in the final year. Failure to provide this will result in your application being delayed.

Statement of purpose
This should be around 500 words in length and answer the following:

  • Why have you selected this course? What are your motivating factors?
  • What are your areas of interest within the course?
  • What contributions do you feel you can make to the course?
  • How do you see the course affecting your career plans?
  • What evidence of research or reading in this area can you show?

The relevant section of the application form will accept up to 4,600 characters, including spaces, or you can upload your statement as a separate document, attached to your online application.

Post-application

Once your application is complete with all supporting documents, we will process it within 4-8 weeks. It will be considered solely on its academic merit.

You can track the status of your application online, and you will also receive email updates on its progress from the Postgraduate Admissions Team.

Offers
If your application is approved, the University will make an official offer of a place on the course. There will normally be a time limit to accept this.

Offers may be conditional on you meeting academic, language, or other requirements. Don't worry about this - many students have conditional offers. Once you have met your conditions, the offer will automatically be made unconditional.

Accepting an offer
If you accept our offer, you must pay your deposit within six weeks of the date of your offer letter. We will only refund this if you fail to meet the conditions of your offer.
