Staged admissions for postgraduate applications

Our most popular courses receive many more applications than we have study places available. To manage the competition for places on these courses, we operate a staged admissions process, with application and decision deadlines throughout the year.


You will apply in the usual way using our Postgraduate Online Application Form, but we give preference to applications that exceed the course entry requirements.

Applications for entry in September 2024 open from September 2023.
