How to apply

Most postgraduate courses require you to apply directly to the University and usually you will need to complete an online application with a supporting statement. For some courses, such as postgraduate teacher training, you will need to use other systems. Always check how you need to apply. You can apply for more than one course at the same time.

Find all the guidance on how to apply for postgraduate study

You do not need to wait until you have completed your undergraduate degree to be able to apply for a postgraduate degree. If you are in the final year of an undergraduate degree, you can apply for a postgraduate course before you have your final degree classification. You will be able to submit your application without uploading a degree certificate at this stage. Any offers you do receive will be subject to you achieving the required undergraduate degree classification stated in the entry criteria for the relevant course and providing a copy of your degree certificate prior to starting the course.
