Application is through the University's online form. We recommend applying early due to a highly competitive selection process.
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. There is a non-refundable application fee of £60.
You must supply one academic or professional reference, your referee can know you on either an academic or professional level.
Once you have paid your application fee, we will email your referee inviting them to submit a reference for you online. It is your responsibility to ensure that your reference has been submitted.
Your CV is not mandatory but it might strengthen your application. A good CV should include information on your academic achievements, internships and/or extra-curricular activities.
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:
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.
Once your application is complete with all supporting documents the processing time is usually between four to eight weeks, however please be aware that processing times do vary and may take longer during busier periods.
You can track the status of your application online, and you will also receive email updates on its progress from the Postgraduate Admissions Team.
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 four weeks of the date of your offer letter. We will only refund this if you fail to meet the conditions of your offer.
