General information on applying/funding deadlines
All applications must be made via the online application form (Applicant Portal) available on the Graduate Admissions Office website.
It is important that you read through the information available on the Graduate Admissions Office website before submitting your application.
If you are seeking funding for your course, there are specific deadlines and eligibility criteria for each funding competition. Please check the Funding and Funding Deadlines section of the Graduate Admissions Office website for application deadlines and links to funding information.
The final deadline for applicants seeking funding is 4 January 2017, but earlier deadlines will apply (for example if you are an overseas applicant from outside of the EU). Even if you are not seeking funding, we strongly recommend that you submit your application by 6 January, as no applications will be accepted once programmes are full.
If places are still available on programmes beyond this deadline; self-funded applicants will continue to be considered until the final deadline of 31 May 2017.
After submitting your online application form, there may be a delay of up to 48 hours before you are able to access to your self-service account and submit your supporting documentation; please take this into account when making your application in order to meet the relevant deadline.
