Applying for a postgraduate course

All applications for postgraduate study are made directly to Solent University.

Before you apply

It's best to get your application in for the course of your choice as soon as possible.

You can also apply for your postgraduate degree even if you've not finished studying your undergraduate one! You may receive a conditional offer meaning you will have to complete your degree at the required grade.

You will need to get some documents prepared for your application, these include:

  • Two academic or professional references.
  • Certified transcripts of qualifications, including English language proficiency if a non-UK student.
  • Copy of passport.
  • Copy of current visa (if applicable).
  • A personal statement.
  • Employer sponsor form, where appropriate.

There are various study options on some of our postgraduate degrees, meaning you can study part-time and at different entry points throughout the year. You can find more information on your chosen courses page.
