January entry

Start a new course in the New Year

Undergraduate, postgraduate taught, distance learning, and postgraduate research courses starting in January

Starting your studies in January is a great alternative if you don’t want to wait until September or, if you haven’t yet completed your current qualification. Starting in January means smaller cohorts and entering the job market at a different time than most UK graduates.

Changed your mind?

January could be the perfect time to transfer to Oxford Brookes and complete your degree with us. All you need to do is contact our team to discuss your application and we will guide you through the process.

What can I study?

We offer a range of undergraduate and postgraduate courses with a January start, in areas such as Business, Marketing, Finance, Hospitality and Health.
