Apply for a postgraduate Master's 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.

For January or February 2021 start options you will need to obtain an offer and pay your deposit (for international students) by 27 November 2020 to guarantee a place on your chosen course. Find out more about International Fees and Scholarships.
