    Applying for a research degree?

    Before you apply through UCAS Postgraduate, you will need to contact the relevant postgraduate research tutor to discuss your proposal informally. This will ensure that the necessary facilities and supervisors are available for your research degree.

    Please visit our research webpages for more information about our research areas and how to apply.

    When should I apply?

    While most postgraduate courses are open to applications all through the year, some courses have application deadlines, so please check the details of the course you are interested in.

    Please contact our Admissions Office on if you want to check if we can still accept your application.

    If you need university accommodation you will need to meet the deadlines on our accommodation pages to be guaranteed a place.

    You should also allow enough time to apply for a visa if you need one to study in the UK.
