How to apply

Postgraduate Programmes

Applications for accredited postgraduate courses are handled in the first instance by Postgraduate Admissions, from where offers are made based on the recommendations made by WMS. The Postgraduate Admissions office is responsible for all aspects of the application process. In addition, the Academic Office offers advice and assistance on all postgraduate matters and, if unable to handle a specific query, will direct you to a department in the University which can. For postgraduate taught places, international applicants for full-time and part-time programmes must submit their application by 31 July for courses that begin in October. If you are a UK or EU applicant, the deadline for applications is 31 August. The normal entry requirement is a first or second class honours degree (minimum 2:2) from a UK university or comparable institution plus suitable experience. Overseas candidates will be required to show sufficient competence in English (find out more). Please note that if you are applying using a computer based within an NHS organisation, the firewalls within the IT system may block any attached supporting documents e.g. references, copies of certificates, from your application and any subsequent email correspondence. Non-receipt of these items by the University will result in a delay to your application and may result in you being unsuccessful in securing a place on your chosen course of study. It is therefore strongly recommended that if you use an NHS-based computer to apply for a course that any supporting documentation is sent to the University either through the post or using a private computer/email address.

Short Courses

Details of how to apply for our non-accredited short courses or professional development courses can be found on the individual course pages. Attendance on a non-accredited programme does not involve having to undertake assessed work. Once you are accepted on a non-accredited basis, it will not be possible to change to accredited attendance.
