How to apply for a postgraduate taught degree

You should complete your application online. Click the button below to get started. There is plenty of helpful information throughout the application process.

If you have all your supporting documents ready, it will only take about 20 minutes to complete the process. However, you can save your application at any stage and come back to it as many times as you like.

What documents will I need?

To complete the application process, you will need to upload scanned copies of your supporting documents. These documents vary from course to course, but usually include:

  • Two references
  • Transcripts or certificates demonstrating that you meet, or are likely to meet, the entry requirements for your course
  • Evidence, if English is not your first language, that your command of English meets the standards required for postgraduate study (an IELTS score of 6.5, or the equivalent, is the norm)
  • A copy of your passport, if you are coming to us from outside the EU and will require a student visa.
