Applying for a postgraduate course

Postgraduate students apply directly to the University. Students must complete an application form which you can download as a PDF file.

Please make sure to enclose copies of your official transcripts as well as two references along with your application form. Overseas students are also required to attach copy of the information page of their passport.

Once you have completed your form, please send it to the International Recruitment Office| as soon as possible, we will then pass it on to the relevant admissions tutor for a decision.

Application deadline

There is no formal deadline for postgraduate studies. However, it is recommended to send an application form as early as possible should you wish to secure a place or should you have to apply for a visa.

What happens next?

An offer letter will be sent to you if you have been accepted, detailing the conditions/fees, and so on. If you need to apply for a visa, it is essential the University provides you with a Certificate of Acceptance for Study (CAS).

  • If your offer is conditional, once you have received your results, please send them to the International Office. You must contact the International Office to let us know if you accept your offer. 
  • If you satisfy the conditions requested, you will be made an unconditional offer. You must contact the International Office to let us know if you accept your offer, unless you already did so while conditional.

If you have accepted your offer, a pre-arrival pack will be sent to you including information about accommodation, payments, Meet and Greet service, induction programme and further information.
