Well, this is exciting! Begin your application now to study at UEA on a Postgraduate Taught Master's or PhD and Research Degree programme. If you have any queries please contact admissions@uea.ac.uk or telephone +44 (0)1603 591515 for advice.

Postgraduate Taught Course Admissions

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.

We recommended that you submit your application for September 2020 entry by 31 July 2020. After this date, we cannot guarantee that places will still be available. Some Postgraduate Taught courses have an alternative start date, so please contact our Admissions Team for specific information regarding their deadlines.

Take a moment to read our Admissions Policy for our Postgraduate Taught courses.

What do I need to do before I apply?

Carefully read the details of your chosen course and make sure that you meet its specific entry requirements. You can easily access this information using our course search. All students must also meet UEA’s general entry requirements, so they’re worth a look too. 

Please be aware that Chinese applicants using email servers 126.com, sina.cn and qq.com may have difficulty receiving messages from the University of East Anglia.

If you use one of these email providers and believe you should have received a decision please contact admissions@uea.ac.uk

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 our 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 (admissions@uea.ac.uk) 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.

How do I cancel my application?

You can cancel your application with us at any point in the process.  To do so, please inform the University Admissions Office by emailing admissions@uea.ac.uk with the following details:
