Four steps to postgraduate study

Postgraduate study is a major investment in your future. It can develop your specialist skills and significantly increase your earning potential.

You can apply for postgraduate study at any time, here's how:

1. Choose your course

We offer over 200 taught Master's and CPD options, including full-time, part-time and distance learning courses.

Search our full range of postgraduate programmes:

2. Complete your application

Our application forms are easy to complete. You'll need a short personal statement and details of your past employment and education.

Applications come directly to our Admissions team rather than to an external organisation. This means we're able to make faster decisions.


3. Apply for financial support

The Government offers eligible Master's students loans to help with tuition fees and living costs.

You can borrow up to £11,570.

You may also be entitled to an alumni discount, scholarship or bursary from the University.

4. Enrol and start your course

You can track the status of your application on the University's portal.

Successful applicants will receive email confirmation, with details of online pre-enrolment.

It's never too late to apply

You can still apply for most courses after teaching has started.

If you've missed the start of term you can get in touch to check we're still accepting applications.

Without my Master's course, I wouldn't have got my job as a CSI for West Yorkshire Police. You need to have something that makes you stand out - if you've got a Master's you're starting off with a base knowledge that other people won't have.
