Entry requirements and how to apply

How to make your application

In order to meet our academic entry requirement, you should have obtained the equivalent of a UK first or good second class honours degree in a science, engineering, IT, business or management discipline. There are some differences in the requirements for each course, so please see the 'Entry requirements' section on individual course pages for entry requirements to your chosen programme.

The deadline for applications for all courses is 31st July 2019. To be considered for September 2019 entry, you must have submitted your application and paid the application fee by this date. Please note, we reserve the right to close a course for new applications before the deadline date if it reaches capacity.

Click to apply

You can apply now, even if you have not finished your undergraduate studies; if necessary we will make you a conditional offer and you can provide final transcripts later.

Please only apply for ONE of our courses; do not submit multiple applications. If you need advice on selecting the most appropriate course for you, or subsequently think you would prefer to switch to another course, please contact us to discuss. For students requiring a visa, any course changes need to be done before you are issued with a CAS.

Please note that we will not generally offer you a place if you have previously attempted and failed a postgraduate course at any University.

If your application is unsuccessful, we will not consider further applications from you for WMG courses. Where we feel it appropriate, we may discuss an alternative course with you before rejecting your application.

What you will need to provide

  • A completed application form and £55 application fee.
  • A Personal Statement, which can be included in the online application.
  • A scan of your transcript (marksheet). If you are still studying, send us your transcripts to date. NB: if you are made an offer, we will then require your original degree transcripts and certificate in hard copy format to clear your conditions.
  • English test result (if applicable) - this can be submitted after you have an offer.
  • One reference. If you completed studies less than 2 years ago, this should be an academic reference. If you graduated more than 2 years ago, we will accept professional references. We contact your referee directly, so please include their valid professional email address on your application form.
