Application deadlines

If you’re a UK or EU resident, there are no application deadlines for postgraduate taught courses. But places are limited, so you should submit your application as early as possible.

If you’re from outside the EU, you may need to get a student visa. To make sure you have time to do this, the application deadline is 31 July for courses that start in September.

Some departments have earlier deadlines – so you should check the information in the Essential Information for each course.
