Stage 2: Submit your application for a postgraduate taught course
The following information details how to apply for most of our taught courses. There are some exceptions - find out more about how to apply for Economics MSc Courses, Warwick MBA, MBChB Graduate Entry Medicine, and PGCE Courses.
Start your application
Applicants for taught courses can apply online through our application portal. You don’t need to complete your application all at once, you can start now and save for later.
In order to avoid delays in receiving a decision, you'll need to upload scanned copies of all relevant supporting documents before you submit your application. Further information as to which supporting documents we require can be found below.
Application dates and deadlines for September/October 2023 entry:
3rd October 2022: Applications open
2nd August 2023: Applications close for students requiring a visa to study.
Some courses have specific deadlines which will be detailed on the department’s website. Applications will close on 2 August 2023 for students who require a Student Visa to study in the UK, to allow time to receive a CAS and complete the visa application process.
Application assessment fee
Before you can submit your application to us, you will be required to pay an application assessment fee of £60. We aim to provide applicants with a decision as soon as possible after their application. We therefore begin processing applications immediately upon receipt of the application assessment fee. For this reason the application assessment fee is non-refundable. Other cancellation rights that applicants have are not affected.
Be sure to include an email address for your referee(s) as we will contact them for you. We typically ask for one academic reference for postgraduate taught courses. Please refer to our guide for providing academic references.
Once you start your application the online system will inform you as to which supporting documents we require. The following information should help you prepare for your application.
- Transcripts from your university-level study (current or completed) including translations if not in English, and grading scale
- Personal statement - see our guide to writing your personal statement
- English language proficiency (if you have not taken an English language test at the point of application, then your result can be submitted at a later date). See full details of the English language requirements for all courses and departments.
