Apply to Master’s Postgraduate Taught Course All candidates for Master's graduate study are normally expected to have a British honours degree or equivalent, but it's worth checking out if your course has more precise requirements and conditions for entry. These are specified by individual Schools, or you can find them listed under the 'requirements' section of each course profile. International candidates whose first language is not English are required to provide evidence of a good command of English as part of their application.* START YOUR APPLICATION CONTINUE YOUR APPLICATION Read Postgraduate Taught guidance notes (PDF)

Can I request feedback if my application is unsuccessful?

Of course. If this situation unfortunately arises, we completely understand that you may want to know why your application wasn’t successful at UEA. You can apply to receive feedback by writing to us within three months of the date you received notification that your application was unsuccessful. Our Admissions Office will then provide personal feedback, in writing, normally within 15 working days of receiving your request, unless they notify you otherwise.

For more detail on this process, explore either the

UEA admissions Feedback Policy or the Postgraduate Research Degree feedback policy.


Can I appeal a decision?

Yes. This is well within your power, so long as your application has not been rejected on academic grounds. You can request a formal review in writing of the final decision made on an application. To do this, you need to email the Admissions Office (


) and detail the reason(s) why you are making an appeal.

The Admissions Office will then conduct a thorough review. They will ensure that all information within your application is taken into account: ensuring zero misinterpretations and 100% correct procedures. This takes 10 working days, after which you’ll hear whether the appeal has been upheld, or rejected.

For more information, please see our

appeal and complaints policy

Please note there is a separate appeals procedure for Postgraduate Research Degrees.
