Apply for a postgraduate taught degree

You can apply for any of our postgraduate courses at any time of the year - for entry this year or next year.

Choose your course

Search our course listings to find a course that suits you, and check you meet the entry requirements.

Most of our postgraduate taught courses start in September, but some have different start dates throughout the year, and may have part-time or distance learning options.

If you are interested in applying for a research degree, such as a PhD, the application process is slightly different.
